Undergraduate Research Seminar Series
Undergraduate Research Seminar
In this interactive session, students will learn about how to get involved in research at USF. Led by current undergraduate researchers (OUR Peer Facilitators), seminar attendees will have a unique opportunity to engage with students who have achieved success in their research endeavors. First and second year students are strongly encouraged to attend.
Meet the OUR Peer Facilitators
I first became involved in undergraduate research as a freshman in Dr. Kevin Nash’s lab at the USF Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute. There, I participate in research projects aiming at using gene therapy to investigate possible treatments for neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental disorders. My current project involves modifying the Ube3A gene to contain secretion and reuptake signals to optimize its distribution in a gene-replacement therapy for Angelman syndrome. This project was the subject of my 2017 OUR Undergraduate Research and Arts Colloquium presentation, and will be the subject of my Honors thesis next year.
