Medical Student Editor and in the formation Distinguished Staff Member

University of Florida Fixel Movement and Neurorestoration Institute

Nita Chen is currently a Movement Disorders Fellow at the University of Florida Movement and Neurorestoration Program. She is a medical student in the class of 2017 at Albany Medical College. To become cultural, she spent her early years of study in Taiwan and truly enjoyed the wonderful Taiwanese cuisine and milk tea, thus ruining her appetite for the rest of her life in the United States. In addition to her majors in neuroscience and cognitive science during her undergraduate career, she locked herself in her bedroom writing silly fictional stories, doodling and playing the piano. Or she could be found rocking like a gigantic science nerd in various labs. Now she hides in her room to study most of the time.
