Studying the basis and progression of Alzheimer's disease using a multi-omics approach.

I am a PhD student in the Tufts University Neuroscience program. I am interested in understanding the contribution of sex-based differences in gene expression in the etiology and progression of Alzheimer's disease. In the Carter lab, I aim to better dissect the heterogeneity of Alzheimer's disease in humans using different model organisms for achieving improved translational outcomes.
