2024 Fellow

Jessica Moore

PhD Institution
Yale University

Jessica will explore the impact of stress on the brain-body axis and offer a foundation for developing interventions to mitigate its effects.

As a 2024 Schmidt Science Fellow, she will investigate the mechanisms governing the development of the gliovascular unit, a critical interface responsible for maintaining the integrity of the blood-brain barrier, particularly under stress conditions.

By combining interdisciplinary approaches and collaborating with experts across neuroscience, immunology, and development, this will contribute to the understanding of the brain at multiple scales, addressing questions with important implications for human health.
