STEM Ambassadors

The STEM Ambassador Program began in 2016 as a training program for a small cohort of University of Utah scientists. Since then, we have grown to work with over 170 graduate students, post-docs, faculty, staff, and undergraduate students. Scroll down to learn about the scientists who have participated. Contact us if you would like to reach out to a STEM Ambassador.

Note that many Ambassador bios were uploaded when the Ambassador joined the program and may not be current.

Danny works in Dr. Julie Hollien’s lab at the University of Utah, where he uses mammalian cells as a model to study cellular stress and neurodegenerative diseases. Specifically, his project focuses on discovering relationship between lysosome repositioning, aggregated proteins, and how they can affect neurodegeneration. He uses a variety of techniques from cell biology, biochemistry, and genetics to answer his research questions. Danny would like to see his research contributing to deeper understanding of protein aggregates and neurodegeneration.
