Kimberly Straub

Kimberly is an undergraduate student majoring in Biology / Psychology. She is currently working with doctoral students Holly Kinder and Emily Wyatt on the traumatic brain injury project. The research team uses a novel piglet model in a variety of behavioral tests to assess learning and memory before and after trauma in order to quantify the cognitive deficits. She is excited to work in a lab that values the promise of regenerative science and explores the use of stem cells as a possible treatment for neural injuries. Kimberly will graduate in May 2016 and aspires to attend medical school.
