Biography

Soyon Hong received her Ph.D. at Harvard University’s Program in Neuroscience in 2012, studying the in vivo homeostasis of beta-amyloid, a primary synaptotoxin in Alzheimer’s disease.  She is currently a postdoctoral fellow in Beth Stevens’ lab at Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital.  Soyon Hong is interested in how neurons and microglia interact to shape synapses during development and how similar neuroglia interactions are involved in the breakdown of functional synapses in adult CNS during disease.  In particular, her project focuses on investigating immune-related mechanisms of synapse loss in Alzheimer’s disease.
