Adrianne earned her Ph.D. in cell biology from the University of Massachusetts Medical School in 2010. Her thesis research focused on the concentration-dependent effect of Sonic hedgehog on axon guidance and membrane trafficking within axonal growth cones. Adrianne joined the Engle lab as a postdoctoral fellow in August 2010. She is currently investigating the effect of pathological mutations in beta-III tubulin on axon growth and guidance in order to better understand the etiology of the eye movement disorder, CFEOM3.
