The field of neuroscience is at the precipice of an unprecedented age of discovery. Recent advances in genetics and cellular and molecular biology have provided stunning insights into the mechanisms underlying many diseases and disorders of the nervous system. The advent of new tools and technologies has allowed neuroscientists to probe neural function at the molecular, cellular, systems, and behavioral levels. The parallel development of scientific and technological advances has positioned us to translate basic science findings to relevant clinical outcomes.
I am beginning my PharmD program in the fall at the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy, and I aspire to one day be a director of pharmacy for a major hospital. This summer I am doing work in the Pennypacker lab where I am studying the effects of PBMC's on endothelial cells under oxygen glucose deprivation conditions.
