About shipleym8

Graduate student hailing from the great Pacific Northwest! I currently study Herpes Simplex Virus in a human neuronal model in Dr. Moriah Szpara's lab. I'm interested in using this model to answer key questions that remain elusive in the field about neuron-virus interactions in vitro. In my free time I enjoy being outside--hiking, playing soccer, camping, and crabbing. Lover of dogs, science, and sports.
