ABOUT

You must be logged in to see Alison Wirshing's about summary.

Alison Wirshing received her BS in Biology from the University of New Hampshire in 2012 where she worked in the labs of Dr.s Farag, Jahnke, and Minocha on an interdisciplinary project marrying plant genetics and molecular biology with chemical engineering towards the goal of improving biofuel production from microalgae. While staying true to her passion for basic cellular biology, Alison chose a different research topic for her doctoral work and transitioned to working with C. elegans in the Cram Lab at Northeastern University. Currently, her work is focused on using the C. elegans spermatheca as a model contractile tube for identifying the molecular mechanisms underlying cell response to mechanical perturbation. Specifically, she is interested in how the actin cytoskeleton reorganizes in response to cell stretch and how this influences tissue contractility.
