The Hope Center for Neurological Disorders is pleased to announce this year’s Hope Center Scholar, Derrick Ogola. Derrick is pursuing his Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology and Biology at Washington University in St. Louis. He will spend the next two academic years investigating the relationship between synaptic activity and amyloid-beta metabolism in Alzheimer’s disease in the lab of Hope Center faculty member John Cirrito.
The Hope Center Scholar program identifies promising undergraduate students who are interested in research on neurological disorders and helps support their research and professional development. We are pleased to partner with the NIH-funded Maximizing Access to Research Careers (MARC) uSTAR program at Washington University, a minority-focused undergraduate training program that seeks to increase diversity in PhD and MD-PhD programs nationwide by supporting students in their junior and senior years.
