Cassie Kemmler '15 Studying Zebrafish
  • Alumni News

Cassie is currently a senior at Smith College where she is majoring in biology. She is part of a group study at Smith that is researching forebrain development in zebrafish, specifically investigating the role of slit proteins and their robo receptors in the formation of the post optic commissure.
