Dr. Kathleen Schoch

Dr. Schoch graduated with a B.S. in Cell and Molecular Biology from Bradley University in her hometown of Peoria Illinois. As an undergraduate, she benefited from the opportunity to work independently in a small research lab. This experience propelled her doctoral studies at the University of Kentucky in Physiology where she focused on studying the mechanisms of neuronal death following traumatic brain injury. During her graduate career, Dr. Schoch was supported by an individual NRSA fellowship, served as a Physiology teaching assistant and volunteered at local elementary school science fairs.

Presently, Dr. Schoch is a postdoctoral researcher at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, in the laboratory of Dr. Timothy Miller. Her research efforts are directed toward the protein tau in models of tauopathies and Alzheimer’s disease. She is currently investigating therapeutics designed to reduce disease pathology and improve cognition in preclinical models.
