This research, which was presented at both the 2017 Fall and 2018 Spring MCC Science Symposia, has provided new insights into the complexity of stroke-related gene transcription, allowing for a better understanding of how a stroke affects gene expression and physiological processes in the adult brain, according to information provided by MCC.

Aly is now in his first semester at Rutgers University and Ruiz is in her second semester at Montclair State University, both pursuing bachelor’s degrees in biology.
