- Bachelor of Arts in Neurobiology from New College of Florida in Sarasota, FL.
Before joining the CTE Center in April 2019, Nicole completed her bachelor’s degree in neurobiology and spent three years assisting with pre-clinical neuroscience research focused on the effects of repetitive mild traumatic brain injury. As a research assistant on the neuropathology and clinical teams, Nicole enjoys studying the neuropathological features associated with repetitive head injuries and is grateful to get to know our brain donors through interactions with their families. Working at the CTE Center, she hopes to contribute to the development of diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventative measures that will benefit those suffering with the long-term effects of brain injury. Nicole plans to pursue a PhD in clinical neuropsychology and continue studying the relationships between head trauma and the resulting symptoms and neuropathology.
