Lifelong perseverance

As Wendy Lasisi told the Gazette "“I was so intrigued by the brain,...that I knew I would pursue neuroscience for the rest of my life, either through medicine or research.”  That passion for neuroscience took her from Angola to the United Kingdom for her Bachelor of Science in neuroscience and later her Master's in clinical neuroscience. While figuring out her next step, she discovered Dr. Michelle Ploughman’s research and the neuroscience program at Memorial. Suddenly everything fell into place and Wendy arrived at Memorial to pursue her PhD.  The team here at NLCAHR is so glad to be a part of Wendy's incredible academic journey.  Read her story here:
