Katy Lowe '20

Applied Mathematics Neuroscience Biophysics

Katy Lowe is from Rochester, NY. She graduated in May of 2020 with a major in neuroscience and minored in applied mathematics and biophysics. During her time at UNE, she worked in the laboratory of Ian Meng, Ph.D., professor of biomedical science, College of Osteopathic Medicine. In the lab, she worked on a collaboration project with the Ganter Lab using a UV injury model to research the role of the BMP pathway in chronic pain and allodynia.

After graduating she plans to work in a neuroscience/research lab before she pursues a graduate degree in neuroscience.

When asked about one unique aspect of working in a lab at UNE, she said, "There are people at all different levels of education at any given time — undergraduates, masters students, Ph.D. students. Everyone works collaboratively in order to get every person’s project in the lab done. There is never just one project going on."
