Project/Area of Research: Nicotinic Receptors and Synapses
I was born and raised in Toledo; and I am excited about the research and scientific advances that are made in my hometown. I am honored to assist in furthering the scientific knowledge and potentially develop treatments and cures for future UTMC patients.
Project/Area of Research: Toxicity of methamphetamine to dopamine neurons
I grew up in a very small town ~3000 people, where I graduated high school in 2006. I then attended Duke University with a major in Biology and a minor in Chemistry, and graduated May 2010. After graduating college I moved to Toledo with my husband and began working in the Neuroscience department here at UT. I really enjoy working in the lab because I do something different every day and have become close friends with the people I work with.
Project/Area of Research: The effects of targeted deletion of the Hand2 gene on the
enteric nervous system.
I have been living in Toledo since 1989. I just got married to my lovely wife, Amanda, in October of 2009 and have been enjoying the married life ever since. I enjoy volunteering at CedarCreek Church where my wife and I attend. I like sports of all kinds and have recently been playing Ultimate Frisbee in my free time.
Project/area of research: the effects of Bisphenol A on autism
Project/Area of Research: The role of MDMA and L-Dopa toxicity on cultured 5-HT neurons.
I have worked in several labs primarily in the areas of biochemistry and molecular biology. This experience has exposed me to a variety of research including work on heterotrimeric G proteins, apoptotic and DNA mismatch repair proteins and most recently proteins targeted by amphetamine use.
