Claudia Nguyen joined the Lieber Institute in the summer of 2018 as a Research Assistant in the Imaging Development Group. Her current research utilizes molecular biology and functional imaging techniques to characterize iPSC-derived neurons from schizophrenic and control patients. Previously, she attended Haverford College, graduating cum laude with a B.S. in Biology and Neuroscience minor in 2018. As an undergraduate, she earned departmental honors for her thesis research in zebrafish, which elucidated the effects of drug-induced stress on decision-making behavior and the neural circuitry involved in this relationship.
