First person – Patricia Shaw [FIRST PERSON]



First Person is a series of interviews with the first authors of a selection of papers published in Disease Models & Mechanisms, helping early-career researchers promote themselves alongside their papers.

Patricia is a PhD student in the lab of Tarik Haydar at Boston University School of Medicine, USA, researching the underlying genetic and cellular mechanisms that contribute to brain development, and investigating how these processes are altered in diseases and disorders, such as Down syndrome, in order to identify novel targetable approaches for therapeutics.
