Welcome to Morgan Lambert!
We are pleased to announce that Morgan has accepted our offer to join the Frost lab for her PhD training! Morgan is in the Neuroscience Discipline of the Integrated BioMedical Sciences program at UT Health San Antonio. She earned her undergraduate degree in Biochemistry and Molecular biology with a minor in Neuroscience from the University of South Carolina. There she worked on detection of copper in the brain using carbon microfiber electrodes, and studied kynureninic acid in the context of brain development. Morgan's dissertation project is focused on retrotransposon-derived episomal DNA and its potential to drive an innate immune response in Alzheimer's disease and related tauopathies. We are thrilled to have you, Morgan!
