The Hope Center for Neurological Disorders is pleased to announce the newest Hope Center Scholar, Denye Mickens. Denye is pursuing her Bachelor’s Degree in Biology at Washington University in St. Louis. She is committed to a career at the junction of basic science and patient care in cardiac and neurological systems and will spend two years in the lab of Jeanne Nerbonne.

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. The Hope Center is 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.
