Mary Makarious is a graduate student interested in bioinformatic and data science approaches to making sense of the multi-omic characteristics of neurodegenerations such as Parkinson’s Disease.   Mary was introduced to the AMP PD team about 3 years ago through her work in Dr. Andy Singleton’s NIA Neurogenetics lab, and has since done an amazing job of writing helpful notebooks, trouble-shooting analyses, and generally helping users feel comfortable with the AMP PD platform.  If AMP PD has a user-friendly face, it looks just like Mary, and we are thrilled to introduce you to her here.
