CTU Clinical Research Assistant
Stephenson Laboratory

Rachel received their B.A. in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry in 2019 from Middlebury College, where they also minored in Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies. As an undergraduate, they volunteered to teach STEAM concepts to local elementary school girls, led outdoor adventure trips, and took a semester off to hike the Appalachian Trail. While at Middlebury, their academic interests culminated in an undergraduate capstone project in behavioral neuroendocrinology which examined the impacts of exogenous testosterone on cognition in female rats as a potential hormone model for testosterone HRT in transgender men. In the future, Rachel is planning to pursue an M.D., PhD as they are passionate about improving the lives of their future patients and community members through applied and engaged research practices. In their free time, Rachel is an avid hiker and runner, a gardener, and a reader of too many books at the same time.
