Costanza Lo Cascio received her BSc in molecular and cellular biology from the University of Bath in the United Kingdom. During her undergraduate studies, Costanza participated in a professional placement program at Barrow under the guidance of Dr. Shwetal Mehta.
While at Bath, she completed her senior research thesis as a member of Dr. Adele Murrell’s laboratory, where she studied the role of DNA hydroxymethylation in metastatic colorectal cancer. Costanza re-joined the Mehta Laboratory in 2016, and is currently a PhD student in the ASU-Barrow Neuroscience Program.
Costanza’s research is focused on identifying OLIG2-specific interactors in glioma stem-like cells, with the aim of elucidating novel ways to target the OLIG2 signaling axis in GBM.
