Victoria is a Molecular & Cellular Biology Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Washington and the Allen Institute for Brain Science, advised by Dr. Dirk Keene and Dr. Ed Lein. She uses postmortem human brains to study Alzheimer’s disease and is interested in the early molecular changes associated with cells that are most vulnerable to disease. Prior to her Ph.D., Victoria completed her M.S. as a CIRM Fellow at Stanford University under the mentorship of Dr. Theo Palmer, and completed her B.A. at McGill University while conducting research with Dr. Guy Rouleau at the Montreal Neurological Institute.
