THE STORY:

Hello! My name is Chris Kostakis and I'm an undergraduate student at Northeastern University in Boston, where I am majoring in Biology, minoring in Psychology, and aspiring to become a doctor. This summer, I'm participating in BRInj's Undergraduate Research Program. I'm very excited to be running with my fellow interns for such a great cause.

My academic interests are centered on neuroscience, and I hope to one day work in medicine and research towards improving our understanding of the human brain.

This summer, I am working on a project focused on Alzheimer's disease and the restoration of neurogenesis in the hippocampus. Neuronal loss within this region of the brain is a hallmark of Alzheimer's disease. By using models of brain tissue afflicted by Alzheimer's disease, this research explores the ways in which neuronal cell populations can be restored in neurodegenerative disorders.

Science has been one of my passions for as long as I can remember, and is rooted in my curiosity of the unknown. Scientific research provides a means to solve complex puzzles about the world we live in - and working at BRInj has provided me with invaluable experience and a foundation for my future career. Most of all, this opportunity has lent several new perspectives on the significance of research itself, and I would encourage any young aspiring scientist to explore their possible interests in research as well.

Please support this cause!
