Zoe Pragg

Undergraduate Researcher

Summary

I am a researcher currently completing my last year at CU Boulder and working in the Shen lab affiliated with the same university. My current project involves the role of Munc18 in transportation of GLUT4.  I am very passionate about my research and also have experience in field work and ecology. I am an avid reader of scientific literature, and in my spare time I run a neuroscience themed journal club on campus.
