Brianna Bristow

Lab Technician

University of British Columbia

She is currently a lab technician in the Cembrowski lab at UBC, where she performs circuit-mapping and molecular techniques on rodent and human brain tissue to characterize new cell subtypes and explore cell-type heterogeneity in regions associated with memory. Before graduating with a BSc in biochemistry at UBC in 2020, she completed her thesis in the Ciernia lab, which focused on developing functional assays to measure microglial activation in vitro and optimizing media conditions for primary microglia cultures to best model the brain microenvironment.
