"Meet Nicole Bowman ’14, biology major and up-and-coming neuroscientist."
In the classroom. Nicole chose Bryn Mawr because she wanted a small classroom experience and the chance to work one-on-one with professors.
In the lab. With the help of summer research funding, Nicole spent summer 2012 in Bryn Mawr’s biology lab. She studied ion channels in leeches, parts of neurons that regulate cell activity and communication. It’s cutting-edge research that has larger implications for how we understand neurotransmitters in the brain. For Nicole, these opportunities to conduct advanced research as an undergraduate student make Bryn Mawr truly unique.
In the future. After graduation, Nicole hopes to attend graduate school and pursue a career in neuroscience research.
