Life Science Research Professional
Mingus is originally from Chicago, IL. She received her bachelor's degree in Neuroscience at Reed College in 2020. Her undergraduate thesis work investigated how cells transition from proliferating retinal progenitor cells to differentiated neurons in a BMP13 mutant zebrafish. She also has a strong interest in studying adult plasticity. In the Tessier-Lavigne lab, she is currently working on a project using in vivo gene editing and iDISCO to uncover mechanisms that might govern structural changes within axons in the adult mouse brain.
Mingus since left the lab to join the graduate program at MIT.
