Christine Marshall P’21

A good researcher is "someone who can enjoy themselves, who can keep the work fun, vital, and exciting."

My passion for neuroscience began at a very early age, when I first learned about the human cerebral cortex, an extraordinarily complex structure that performs a staggering number of specialized functions. Prior to joining Andover’s faculty, I worked as a developmental neurobiologist. My research focused on identifying specific genes that direct neural stem cells within the developing brain to acquire distinct “cell fates” or functional roles. Now a full-time educator, I continually draw upon my research career and particularly enjoy mentoring young students as they tackle their own research projects and begin to realize their vast potential.
