Kate Walter is a third year undergraduate at Boston College majoring in Psychology. Driven by an interest in neuroscience and Alzheimer disease, she joined the Bateman lab summer of 2015 to study the effects of apolipoprotein E-4 (ApoE4) genotype on amyloid-beta (Aß)kinetics. After graduating, Walter hopes to pursue an MD program. While not studying or working in the lab, Walter enjoys running, hiking, horseback riding and road trips.
