Delaney Liskey | Researching Your Own Disease
Delaney Liskey strives to empower patients to be research scientists of their own disease through the establishment of training initiatives. Since early childhood, she has battled with multiple sclerosis (MS), a neurodegenerative disorder of the brain and spinal cord, and has since applied her personal experiences with the disease towards research in uncovering the underlying cellular mechanisms to develop strategies for tissue repair.
Delaney is a PhD student in Regenerative Sciences at the Mayo Clinic, ranked the best hospital in the world by U.S. News, and holds a bachelor's degree in Cognitive Science from the University of Virginia. She was previously awarded the National Institutes of Health Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program fellowship at the Mayo Clinic.
