Caroline Horton Lew is a human comparative neuroanatomist, and received a Ph.D. in Biological Anthropology from UC San Diego in 2018. Her doctoral work utilized quantitative stereological methods in postmortem human brains to examine microstructural differences in limbic structures of neurodevelopmental disorders with atypical sociobehavioral phenotypes. She completed a one-year postdoc, also at UC San Diego, where she identified key differences in the serotonergic innervation of the amygdala in the closely linked, sociobehaviorally dichotomous neurodevelopmental disorders, Williams syndrome and Autism Spectrum Disorder. In 2019, Caroline joined the lab of Lea Grinberg at UC San Francisco, where she used quantitative stereological methods to investigate early biomarkers of pathology in subcortical and brain stem nuclei in Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases. In 2022, Caroline joined Meso Scale Diagnostics, LLC in San Francisco as a Field Applications Scientist.
