Aellah Kaage is currently a senior at Princeton University, where she is pursuing a degree in Molecular Biology. On campus, her research focuses on marsupial antimicrobial peptides and their effects on the immune system. As a Peer Health Advisor, she connects students with health-related resources; as a Mend Leader, she teaches classmates how to repair damaged clothes. She has worked with the Freshman Scholars Institute at Princeton and the Kick-Start event at the University of Kent, both programs designed to help first years acclimate to university life. Aellah is specifically interested in developmental toxicology and exposure to toxicants in food, and is excited to meet other students who are likewise curious about toxicology.
Aellah Kaage is being mentored by Tamara House-Knight.
