Chase Marie Swinton

2021 NeURO Trainee
Symbolic Systems Program

Chase Swinton (‘23) is a sophomore majoring in Symbolic Systems with a concentration in Neurosciences from Sherwood, Arkansas. She’s really happy to be a part of the Zuchero Lab which aspires to understand how myelin is formed in the central nervous system and perturbed in disease. After taking ‘Minds and Machines’, Chase found herself interested in the intersection between systems and cognitive neuroscience. Eventually she’d like to explore if there’s a relationship between oligodendrocytes, synaptogenesis, and memory. Outside of lab, Chase is a health disparity research assistant for the Community Anchor Consortium (CAC). CAC is an initiative between Stanford Medical School and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health working to achieve resource equity in East Palo Alto. She is also heavily involved in Stanford’s Black community. Chase really enjoys binging mystery docuseries, feeding her anime addiction, curating her ear piercings, and listening to R&B.
