Mr. Quinn Reed Self
Richmond, Vermont
Outside of the classroom, I have worked as a TA in both the general and organic chemistry labs. Additionally, I am currently the president of Beta Beta Beta (Tri-Beta), the biology honorary. I am also a member of the theme house community and I reside in the Green House, which has the mission of promoting local and sustainable practices.

Through studying cellular neuroscience, I have focused on the underlying mechanisms that control nervous system function under both healthy and pathological conditions. During the Fall of  my junior year I was able to study aboard at the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand. When I returned to SLU in the spring, I began my research project  titled “Developing a Viability Assay for a Hippocampal Cell Line Model of Neurodegeneration” with Dr. Ana Estevez as my research mentor.  I continued this research through a SLU Fellowship over the summer and I will be concluding with an Honors SYE.
