Jennie Nelson

(Pilarski Lab) Currently I am working towards my B.S. in biology and plan to earn my Ph.D. in neuroscience. It is my goal to become a neuroscience researcher. When I get a chance, I like to go hiking, ready mystery novels, medical journals, and textbooks, play the piano, practice martial arts, play with my nieces and nephews, and take my cat for a walk.
