Meet The Lab
I am mainly responsible for throwing parties. In my spare time I write grants and try to pay the bills. For fun I read papers on the effects of chronic exposure to drugs and alcohol on the brain.
I'm primarily responsible for running microdialysis, HPLC, and handling lab financials. In my free time I enjoy the outdoors, horse racing, and fine bourbons.
I'm mainly in charge of rodent husbandry, genotyping, and jugular cath surgeries. My hobbies include extolling the virtues of electric vehicles and saving up for a (one way) ticket to Mars.
I am primarily interested in the interaction between affective disorders (such as anxiety and depression) and alcohol use and misuse. Outside of lab, I enjoy drawing, traveling with my husband, and spending time with my dog and cat.
My primary research interest is the neurobiology of substance abuse, and the influence of social and environmental factors on the development of addiction. I greatly enjoy exploring new places, playing video games with (i.e. better than) my husband, college football (Hotty Toddy), and thoughtful discourse on movie/TV trivia.
My primary research interest is understanding the role of dopamine in substance abuse disorders. I am also interested in how pain treatment options can alter dopamine, and in particular how opioid receptors modulate those changes. Outside of the lab, I enjoy the outdoors (when it's warm enough) and spending time with my boyfriend and our dog.
I am an MD/PhD student, currently in my 3rd year of grad school. I’m interested in the neurobiological mechanisms underlying addiction and finding potential treatments to help my future patients. Outside of the lab I enjoy bargain shopping, cooking, painting, and spending time with my family and husband.
I am a fourth year grad student interested in the neurobiology of cocaine abuse using rodent models. My hobbies including running, watching parks and rec, and going grocery shopping at Costco.
Hi! I’m Bri! I took too long to give the webmaster my bio so he’s writing it for me. I’m interested in researching the role of early life stress in heroin addiction; however, I spend most of my time listening to sappy acoustic covers of popular music.
Hi! I’m Gracie! I'm still working on my bio. All that really matters is that I'm a huge ABBA fan. Whether the performance be hologram or corporeal, I'll never miss the opportunity to humbly bow at the feet of Sweden's (and Earth's) greatest band.
