The Science Life: Andrès Villegas

How did a neurodiverse family shape a scientist's interest in the brain? Meet Andrès Villegas, graduate student in the Siegelbaum lab.

Advancing science takes all kinds of people from all kinds of backgrounds. Join us for The Science Life, an illustrated series that explores the lived experiences of people working in brain research: the human moments of tragedy and triumph that define what it means to be a scientist and how science is done.

Written in collaboration with Melissa Lee, PhD.
