Humans of UCSF: Joe Udeochu

Columnist

"Born and raised in Nigeria, I emigrated to the United States as a teen. Took a very indirect path into the research. Prodding by my community college professor and an interest to better understand brain plasticity drove me into research. Currently, my project is focused on better understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms of aging in the brain, with particular interest in microglia."
