Noelle received her BSc as a double major in Molecular and Cellular Biology and Chemistry from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign while being a member of the NCAA Division I women’s soccer team. Afterwards, she earned her MSc in Neural Systems & Computation as a joint degree between ETH Zurich and University of Zurich. Noelle completed her thesis in the Hierlemann lab, where she conducted a pilot study characterizing the electrophysiological properties of iPSC neuron and astrocyte co-cultures on a high-density microelectrode array. Meanwhile, she worked as a research assistant in the Detmar Lab, where she helped investigate the effect of melanoma-derived extracellular vesicles on the lymph node microenvironment. In the Tsai Lab, Noelle utilizes 2D and 3D iPSC models to explore neurodegenerative mechanisms.
