Helena Raposa
Graduate Researcher
RESEARCH SUMMARY
I have an eclectic experience when it comes to research over my undergraduate and post-bacc years. During my undergraduate years I participated in 2 summer research internships and was also part of a biophysics lab for 2 years at Oregon State University. From my undergraduate research on cancer cell and organoid behavior, our group finalized and published a research paper in October 2021. Last year, I completed a post-bacc at Stowers Institute and had the opportunity to present on a new Alzheimer’s disease model using the mouse olfactory system. This year I am happy to have become a part of the Gibson lab to learn about and contribute to expanding the Nematostella research field.
