The Brossier lab welcomes Gemma Martin (pronouns: they/them/theirs) as a new research assistant. Martin was born and raised in King George, Virginia. They earned a BS in Biology from Shenandoah University in Winchester, Virginia. Afterwards, they completed a post baccalaureate fellowship at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland. They will be investigating how different mutations in Nf1 and environmental factors like maternal diet interact to affect neural stem cell proliferation and differentiation within different regions of the brain. We’re glad to have them bring their experience to the Brossier lab!
