Stephanie, during her time in the lab as a UROP at MIT, invented a simple parallel viral delivery device to target 3-D structures in the brain. Stephanie was named a Paul E. Gray UROP in 2008, and received the Walle J.H. Nauta Award for Outstanding Research in 2009. She then went on to a Ph.D. program at Princeton.
