Current graduate students in my lab:
Caitlin is interested in exploring adolescent ethanol exposure and its association with enhanced ethanol drinking and anxiety-like behaviors in adulthood specifically, the impact of adolescent ethanol exposure on brain stem noradrenergic circuit maturation in mice. Caitlin enjoys being here at Penn State College of Medicine because of all the teaching and research opportunities that will allow her to become a better teacher, anatomist, and researcher.
Angela is interested in the biological mechanisms underlying behavior. She is particularly interested in stress, drug abuse, and addiction. Angela enjoys combining both behavioral testing with molecular experiments to further understand what differences exist at the cellular level. Angela enjoys being at Penn State College of Medicine because of the many opportunities for collaboration between labs.
