Personal Statement

Jackie graduated from the University of San Diego with a B.A. degree in Biochemistry and English. Her dissertation work in the Graduate Program in Neuroscience at the University of Illinois at Chicago seeks to understand the relationship between cerebral vasculature and the neurogenic niches and how deletion of a particular protein in endothelial cells is detrimental to adult neurogenesis. She is also investigating how these interactions are altered following ischemic stroke. She is currently a predoctoral fellow funded by the American Heart Association and has been the recipient of the Chancellor's Graduate Research Fellowship Award from UIC. Jackie has been teaching the Neuroscience and the Mind course at SAIC since Fall 2014.
