This week’s is the Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Nerve Journal, Isabelle Pelcher (CAS β€˜21) from Long Island, NY!
Isabelle began taking interest in research during high school, where she joined a research program and wrote a paper that ignited her interest in neurodegenerative diseases and inspired her to pursue Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) research.
β€œI always loved biology, but as I got older that love began to focus more on Neuroscience...I knew I wanted to become a doctor,” she said.
Last summer, Isabelle worked as a Research Assistant in the CUBIT Laboratory at Stony Brook University Hospital on Long Island, where she analyzed MRI images of World Trade Center Responders to study Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and cognitive impairment. This summer, she will be interning at the Alzheimer’s Disease and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) Center at the Boston University School of Medicine. Here, she will be analyzing MRI images and performing statistical analysis on data obtained from the department’s current CTE and AD projects, as well as developing and working on her own independent research.
Isabelle currently works for the neuroscience department as a Learning Assistant for NE102: Introduction to Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology and serves as the Nerve Journal’s -- a student-led neuroscience publication -- Co-Editor-in-Chief.
Her favorite thing about the Neuroscience program is the professors. β€œSince the program is very small, the professors get to know the students very well,” she said. β€œThey want to see us succeed and be the best we can be, which is really encouraging. The program feels like a big family.”
Her advice to current and prospective neuroscience student is the following: β€œBe yourself and do not compare yourself to others. Know your goals and work towards them. Be true in who you are and remember that everyone has their own path. Don’t forget to enjoy your journey along the way.”
