Cayce Shaw Receives Fellowship

Cayce Shaw, a 3rd year PhD candidate in the Rehab Science graduate program, received the UCSF Hillblom Center for the Biology of Aging and Bakar Aging Research Institute (BARI) Graduate Fellowship. This is a one-year fellowship for $35,000. Cayce's research interests are directed towards understanding the role of sex chromosomes in the aging female and male brain. Specifically, she is studying how the inactive X chromosome confers resilience in females against age-related cognitive decline and Alzheimer's disease under Dr. Dena Dubal's guidance. 

Congratulations Cayce!
