    Zouzana obtained a B.Sc. in Molecular Biology and Genetics from the Democritus University of Thrace and an M.Sc. in Neuroscience from the University of Crete, Greece. She joined the Karagogeos lab as a BSc student. She is currently a Ph.D. candidate working on the role of Rac1 and Rac3 small RhoGTPases in cortical interneuron development. She is using time-lapse imaging techniques as well as other state-of-the-art approaches such as electroporation in brain slices and ex vivo migration assays to uncover the cellular defects of interneurons lacking Rac1/3. She is also using -omics approaches to uncover downstream events.
