Caitlin is a PhD student in Biological and Biomedical Engineering at McGill University in Montreal. She is using neuroimaging to study how brain chemistry and structure change over time in a rat model of Alzheimer’s disease, and if anti-inflammatory treatment can mitigate these disease-related changes. She is not yet jaded by the world of academia and is keen to expand her horizons by learning about (and concisely communicating!) as much scientific research as possible. To this end, she recently helped run the Montreal chapter of the international science festival, Pint of Science, and is currently volunteering as a writer/editor/infographic designer for UsefulScience.org, a website that publishes one-sentence summaries of scientific articles to the general public. In the little spare time that is left, Caitlin can be found playing competitive ultimate frisbee or scouring the internet for easy meal prep ideas.
