Former Northeastern student Dr. Amirah Aly is working on developing therapeutic approaches for treating Huntington Disease. As a pharmacy student at Kuwait University, Amirah realized that she wanted to be involved with medical research that has the potential to provide patients with better treatment options and to help improve their quality of life. This led her to join the Waszczak lab at Northeastern University, where she earned her PhD in Pharmacology.

In her free time she enjoys hiking, biking the seawall, and trying Vancouver’s best coffee and donut shops.
