Alea is from Fort-Lauderdale, Florida and is a Senior at the University of Central Florida. She is currently majoring in health science: Pre-clinical. Her research involves analyzing the relationship between the aggregation and structure of Amyloid-Beta peptide. This research will elucidate the onset of Alzheimer’s and contribute to possible treatment. By providing a structural mechanism of formation of these highly cytotoxic aggregation, we will be able to better understand its behavior. Alea plans to pursue a career in Dentistry where she would later specialize to be an Oral Surgeon.
