Pia-Kelsey O'Neill is a PhD candidate at the Neurobiology Department of Columbia University. She studies memory and mouse models of schizophrenia by measuring electrical activity in the underlying brain circuits. At the University of California, Los Angeles, where she received her BS in neuroscience, she studied the mechanisms behind fear learning in rats. She has taught topics in neuroscience to graduates and undergraduates in Columbia’s biology program.
When & Where
Genspace is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting culture, innovation and education in molecular biology for both children and adults. We work inside and outside of traditional settings, providing a safe, supportive environment for training and mentoring in biotechnology. In the summer of 2010, we built the first-ever community laboratory, a facility where we design workshops, train students and innovate new technologies. As a membership-based community lab, we offer New Yorkers the opportunity to work on their own projects in a safe, Biosafety level 1 facility.
