Mitali Tyagi - Graduate Student
I received my B.S. in Zoology from University of Delhi, India. I then earned my M.S. in Neuroscience from Jiwaji University, India. During that time, I examined the effect of maternal malnutrition on myelination in rat cerebrum at neonatal and adulthood stages. I worked for several years validating anti aggregation effects of secondary metabolites from medicinal plants in neurodegenerative disorders at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi. I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. in Neuroscience in Shepherd lab, where I will study synaptic plasticity and neurodegeneration.
