Becky is a 3rd year PhD student and long-time Dehorter lab member, continuing on from her honours with Nathalie back in The Australian National University, Canberra. Her research involves investigating the auto-immune response to a-synuclein aggregates and its role in the development of Parkinson’s disease. Becky is highly experienced in designing and executing behavioural paradigms in mice, and her expertise is in correlating vast data arrays to elucidate highly meaningful trends in health and disease.


"In my project so far, I have been provided with the fortune to collaborate with different disciplines to explore neurological and immunological associations, and genetic derivations of Parkinson's disease. The dynamic and collaborative involvement of interdisciplinary fields and the constant potential for growth that neuroscience offers excites me to be a part of future life-changing scientific advancements within medical research."
