03-02-15 Joe wins 2015 New Vision Award
Joe had a very successful conference last week, and was awarded the 2015 New Vision Award at the Charleston Conference on Alzheimer’s disease. This is a highly selective award (with money!) which involves a first round of selections to attend the conference and then a study section-like discussion of the remaining entries at the conference. Joe’s proposal was selected unanimously.

I became drawn to neuroscience during my undergraduate education at Vassar College, which emphasized perspectives in both biology and psychology to the study of the brain and behavior. At Vassar I worked with Dr. John Long studying interactions of the brain, environment, and behavior in the context of evolution. My interest in neurodegenerative diseases grew during an internship in lab of Dr. Nikolaos Robakis at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. I am now pursuing these interests as a graduate student in the Stanford Neuroscience Program. I joined the Wyss-Coray lab in July of 2008, and I am currently investigating how the immune system, particularly the complement components, may be involved in mechanisms of neurogenesis. In general, I would like to understand how such mechanisms could be disrupted in disease states and the related brain immune responses.
