BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Eid received her Bachelor’s degree in Physiology and Neurobiology from the University of Connecticut in 2012. She then joined the interdisciplinary neurosciences program at the University of Rhode Island and worked in the lab of Dr. Nasser Zawia. Her dissertation work centered around understanding epigenetic mechanisms of exposure to the heavy metal lead (Pb) and its effect on Alzheimer’s related genes.

She joined the laboratory of Dr. Jason R. Richardson in 2016. The focus of her work is study gene x environment interactions in Alzheimer’s disease, specifically the relationship between APOE gene variants and exposure to pesticides.
