Advisor: Bryan Yamamoto
Hometown: Coimbatore, India
Undergraduate School: Purdue University
Graduate School/University: Washington State University
I received my B.S in Computer Science from Purdue University in 2003 and earned my PhD. in Neuroscience from Washington State University in 2009. My postdoctoral training here at the University of Toledo involves investigating the neurotoxic effects of methamphetamine and MDMA. Over the next few years I will be working towards better understanding the neurodegenerative effects of substituted amphetamines.
|Tetyana Zhelay, Ph.D.|
I received my dual B.S. in Molecular and Cellular Biology and Psychology at the University
of Illinois in 2005. I then pursued a graduate career at Northern Illinois University
in 2007 and received my Ph.D. in Neuroscience and Behavior in 2013. My doctoral work
consisted of studying the influence of chronic stress on behaviors and neurochemical
changes associated with psychostimulant abuse. For my postdoctoral training, I will
further investigate the interaction between stress and drug addiction and focus on
changes at the cellular and molecular levels.
