Spotlight: Alison Paquette, Research Scientist

Congratulations to Alison Paquette who recently was promoted to Research Scientist in the Price Lab. Alison received her PhD in Experimental and Molecular Medicine at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. She is interested in identifying molecular biomarkers that may predict preterm birth and adverse neonatal outcomes such as preeclampsia. “Pregnancy complications are not very well understood, and we are amongst the only labs really taking a systems biology approach to this kind of research,” Alison explains. “Complications from pregnancy affect the delivery process as well as potentially cause long-term consequences for the child.”  Alison’s supervisor, Dr. Nathan Price, commented: “She is one of the clearest thinkers and fastest writers I’ve ever worked with, and has shown this by completing the research and writing for many papers and (now funded!) grant proposals based on her work.”
