    Costanza Lo Cascio, BSc

    Graduate Student

    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.
