Hannah Lee is a senior who carried out research in the lab of Keerthi Krishnan. This past year she was awarded a prestigious Goldwater Scholarship.
“I will be using the scholarship money to help pay for a postgraduate education. Right now, I am still considering two different career paths: a PhD in neurobiology or a MD/PhD in neurodevelopmental disorders. With a PhD, I would research disorders that involve neuroplasticity using animal models, data visualization, and principles of graphic design. If I decide to pursue a MD/PhD, I would study the individualization of medicine and therapy with neurodevelopmental and learning disorders. Either way, I want to delve deeper into the world of neurobiology, and it is thanks to the Goldwater Foundation that I can pursue my dream career.”
