Holly Gildea

Ph.D. Candidate


I received my bachelor's degree in neuroscience from Brown University in 2016, where I worked in the lab of Dr. Alexander Jaworski studying the roles of novel axon guidance cues. In the Dillin lab, I am working with Ashley Frakes to understand how the nervous system communicates protein stress across tissues.
