Aisha Dorta

Post-baccalaureate student


Aisha graduated from Brooklyn College (CUNY) in the spring of 2014 with a degree in Biology and Physics. During the summer of 2011, she was an undergraduate student in the lab through the MCO Summer Intermship Program. Aisha's work during that internship contributed to a paper on ovariole number in Drosophila that was published in Developmental Biology.

Aisha returned to the lab through the Harvard GSAS Post-Baccalaureate Research Scholars program in the summer of 2014, and will continue working on ovariole morphogenesis in Drosophila.
