I currently have received a spring 2016 UConn IDEA* grant award from the Office of Undergraduate Research. The award is for the proposal “Memory Deficit Due to Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Concussion in Incoming College Students”. I will use these funds to screen the incoming class of UConn students regarding their history of TBI and concussion. Following the screening, I will use established instruments to implement and test a memory enhancing intervention. My advisor and mentor is Dr. Angela Starkweather.
I have also recently completed a NIH summer summer genetics workshop.
