Peppar Cyr, MPhil

MD/PhD Candidate

Peppar joined the lab in 2018, after completing an AB in Psychology from Princeton University and an MPhil in Clinical Neurosciences from the University of Cambridge (UK). Her thesis project is on using multiple forms of newborn MRI to predict motor outcomes through age 10 in very preterm children (born at least 2.5 months early) with and without brain injury due to their early birth, as funded by her NIH F30 grant. In addition to her research, Peppar is working to make medical education more disability-inclusive, both at WashU and nationally.
