2018 Conference Keynote Lecture

"Neuroplasticity: Mapping a Path from Undergraduate to Postdoctoral Clinical Research"



We now know that the adult brain is incredibly flexible or “plastic.” Under the right conditions it can readily adapt, reorganize, and re-map its structure and function. My investigations of this exciting phenomenon have not only guided my path from undergraduate research to postdoctoral fellowship, but have helped me to become more adaptable myself. Join me as I share what I have learned from the brain – and what you can too!  


Dr. Kendra Cherry-Allen is a Washington State native and attended the University of Washington in Seattle where she graduated from the honors program with a B.S. in biology/physiology. She then earned her doctorate of physical therapy (DPT) and her PhD in Movement Science from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. She is currently a postdoctoral research fellow in the Human Brain Physiology and Stimulation Laboratory in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Johns Hopkins University. Her research investigates the mechanisms that underlie motor learning and she is interested in developing interventions that promote motor learning in people recovering from neurological injury.
