Rania Ziar PhD

Rania graduated from Oberlin College in 2021 with a BA in neuroscience and minor in chemistry. During her time at Oberlin, she worked in Dr. Gunnar Kwakye’s lab studying the impact of environmental toxicants on neurodegenerative diseases.

After graduating, she worked as the program coordinator of undergraduate research at her alma mater and continued pursuing her research there.

In the Tesar lab, Rania is interested in understanding the mechanisms underlying the pathology of vanishing white matter disease (VWMD). When she is not in the lab, Rania enjoys running, watching sunsets, reading, and hanging out with her friends and family.
