NHS junior Isabella DeBrino presented a research project at the first ever Neurological Surgery P.C. Health Science Competition (NSPC HSC) on May 30. This program is sponsored by the Center for Science Teaching & Learning (CSTL), and is the first and only Health Science Competition in the United States.

Isabella conducted her research study this past summer at The Robert Packard Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins University which was designed to investigate the interactions between two types of cells derived from patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Her research presentation is entitled, Effect of C9orf72 GGGGCC Hexanucleotide Repeat Expansion on the Survival of hiPSC Derived Neurons.

Way to go, Isabella!
