Amoy Antunet, from Atlanta, Georgia, is an internet sensation as she explains neuroscience from a lab in her bedroom.  Amoy's father, Davin Shepherd, has been instrumental in helping guide Amoy in her pursuit.  Her Facebook page and videos have had astonishing success.  Finding her father's microscope at the age of 3 began her interest in the world of science. 

Amoy will be participating in the 2018 Neuroscience Roadmap Scholars Program scheduled June 20 - 22, 2018. 

Dr. Farah Lubin has offered to mentor Amoy, should she decide to pursue neuroscience.
