Christina Joselevitch is a Postdoctoral Associate in the Department of Neurobiology and Behavior at Stony Brook University. Her scientific interest is cellular communication in the nervous system – put simply, how brain cells talk to one another. This knowledge is fundamental to understand the healthy brain and to fight disease in the central nervous system. Specifically, she studies the building blocks and the function of synapses, which are the structures responsible for transmitting information between neurons. In her research at Stony Brook University, Christina investigates how neurons of the retina talk to one another, by combining techniques such as transgenesis, live cell imaging and electrophysiology. Christina participated in the PCLP program in 2019 and is very excited to be joining the PCLP leader group in 2020. In her spare time, she sings and bikes.
