Social Media

Congratulations to Reina Ashizawa, she has been accepted into Tufts University master’s program! In 2019, Reina joined the Cho Lab as a summer intern through Burke Neurological Institute’s Summer Science Research Program. Under the mentorship of Dr. Sunghee Cho and Dr. Mustafa Balkaya, Reina presented a research poster on Observing Proportional Recovery in Mouse Models of Stroke. Over the summer of 2020, Reina returned to the Cho Lab remotely with support from a Tufts University scholarship that she was awarded.

Reina shares, “The great experiences I had over the past two summers at BNI have really helped me get a start in biological research. I truly appreciate the guidance of Dr. Sunghee Cho and am lucky to have had her as a mentor.” Dr. Cho is proud of Reina’s accomplishment and her desire to purse the field of research.
