I joined ALBA because :
Since my first year of medical school, I have been always interested in neurology, especially neuro-oncology and the underlying molecular biology of developing brain tumors. I enjoy navigating and conducting research in the field of neuroscience. I recently published a review article on a novel oncogene that enhances malignant glioma progression: Astrocyte elevated gene-1. I am eager to maintain my interest in neurology and look forward to enhancing my knowledge and enthusiasm by being a member of ALBA Network. This membership may allow me to communicate with neurologists from all over the world and share our ideas and thoughts.

I joined ALBA because :
I really would like to be part of this network and contribute to gender equality in science. Specifically, I would like to fight for getting that women who finished their PhD and want to continue successfully their research career, would have the same possibilities than men. I see also very important to work on the data collection of gender bias to provide objective information about gender inequalities in our field. Last but not less, I would like to learn more from people in the Alba Network and share experiences.

I joined ALBA because :
I had been fascinated by Neuroscience since my school days. One of the primary reasons was overhearing occasional talks in the family about nerves after a family member was diagnosed with a condition. I also am deeply fascinated by the functioning of the brain and the central nervous system (especially after watching the movie Lucy).
