About the Speaker:

Lindsay Hohsfield, PhD, is a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Dr. Kim Green at UCI MIND. She graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2007 with a BA in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology. She then received an NIH Postbaccalaureate IRTA and worked in the TSE/Prion Cell Biology Section at the NIAID Rocky Mountain Laboratories until 2009. Following this, Dr. Hohsfield was awarded a Fulbright grant to pursue Alzheimer’s research in Austria. She stayed on to continue her research and graduated from the Medical University of Innsbruck in 2014 with a PhD in Neuroscience. At UC Irvine, Lindsay continues her work on Alzheimer’s disease trying to better understand how the immune system plays a role in neurodegenerative diseases.
