Sabrina Giaimo ’22

Sabrina is concentrating in Neurobiology & Behavior with plans to attend graduate school to get a PhD in neuroscience. She hopes to become a professor and research the hippocampus and related structures and their role in schizophrenia. On campus, she is involved with the Big Red Marching Band and Pep Band (boin jand) and the Cornell Lunatic. She has also done a couple shows with Cog Dog Theatre Troupe! Sabrina previously worked at Julie Hansen's lab researching forage crops and now works at David Smith's lab researching memory. Her favorite class is PSYCH 3250: Adult Psychopathology because it is a super interesting class, and the professor is really awesome. To relax, Sabrina enjoys exploring nature, crocheting, listening to music, and doing random, dumb, new things. But, most of all, she just loves to hang out with her friends. She is from Ohio and has recently learned how to cut hair last year and became somewhat of her house's barber! Last summer, she worked in her lab by helping run and socialize rats. She is mostly assisting with a project investigating the role of the prefrontal cortex in memory retrieval. She is most excited to meet with the new students and be there for them as they learn to navigate Cornell, and hopefully be able to help them through it. Sabrina's words of advice for new students: “Honestly, Cornell can be tough and it's a big adjustment. Be. Kind. To. Yourself. Don't beat yourself up too bad over grades or anything else. Your wellbeing should always come first. And I promise you taking some time for yourself won't be the end of the world, in fact, you'll probably do better for it.”
