I am the Project Manager working on the exciting WALLe project in the Jacobs lab! My background is in Behavioral Neuroscience and Public Health and my professional interests include public health policy, neuroscience, and endocrinology and I plan to pursue a medical degree in the future. I worked for 3 years in neuro-oncology clinical research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and am excited now to be contributing to the important work the Jacobs lab is conducting in Alzheimer’s research. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, spinning, skiing, volunteering, and traveling. This past year, I became a platelet donor and began volunteering for the Red Cross, which has been rewarding!
Update August 2022: Julia has started medical school at the University of Massachusetts! Congrats Julia!!
