Jennifer Su

I received my B.A. in Molecular and Cellular Biology from UC Berkeley in 2014. During my time at Berkeley, I worked in Dr. Daniela Kaufer’s lab researching how stress affects neural stem cell development through signaling in the stem cell niche. After graduating, I worked in Dr. Theo Palmer’s lab investigating how genetic risk factors and environmental risk factors can synergize to increase the risk of autism spectrum disorders in a developing fetus. As a student at Stanford, I am interested in further exploring neurodevelopment, neurodegeneration, and tumor formation in hopes of applying my learning to address diseases and disorders in human health. Outside of lab, I enjoy long distance running, hiking, and exploring creative methods of urban gardening.
