My research, I believe, was the crescendo of what was my academic journey here in Manhattanville college. It is by far one of my proudest accomplishments. My research mentor was Dr. Bettica and my topic was -
The enhancement of the neuroprotective properties of Silymarin and Silibinin by the addition of Phosphatidylcholine and various bioantioxidant vitamin E isomers against neurotoxin induced Parkinsonian symptoms in B-35 neuroblastoma cells in vitro

My classmates and I had the chance to participate in poster presentations, first at the Society for Neuroscience conference in Washington D.C. and then at the American Society for Cell Biology conference in Denver, Colorado last year.
