PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

Jessica joined the Engle Lab in 2018 after earning her BS in Neuroscience and Biology from Dickinson College. She works with Mary Whitman, MD, PhD to study the genetic and environmental cues integral to axon guidance in the oculomotor system. Her responsibilities include inhibiting axon growth in culture, imaging cranial motor neurons and extraocular muscles in whole mount embryos, and performing in situ hybridization experiments. Jessica's interests include axon guidance disorders, epilepsy, and the mechanisms underlying neurodegenerative disease.
