Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi! My name is Charlotte Misturado and I am currently a junior at Yale University pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Biomedical Engineering. Upon finishing up undergrad, I intend to enroll in a PhD program where I can conduct research that bridges the divide between neuroscience and BME. Outside of my coursework, I am involved in a few extra curriculars on campus including Code Haven and Yale e-NABLE. I also work part time as a research assistant in one of Yale's Biophysics Labs studying the nervous system.

S4800: Hydra, the Genus not the Monster in Splash Fall 2023 (Nov. 11, 2023)
The main focus of my course is the Hydra Vulgaris, a fresh-water polyp straight out of a science fiction novel. These organisms are practically immortal in a lab setting and have been the inspiration for some very cool research related to aging, regeneration and the nervous system. I intend to bring in live Hydra with fluorescent neurons that can be visualized during firing. The students have an opportunity for some hands on experience by feeding the Hydra with Brine Shrimp.
