My independent study examined mRNA expressions of ghrelin receptors (GHSR) and glucocorticoid receptors (NR3C1) in the brains of mice exposed to chronic social defeat paradigm versus the control. Currently, I am working on my Honor’s project where I am investigating potential on/off gene switch for circadian rhythm in mice. My time working in the Abizaid lab has greatly influenced my interest in pursuing graduate study. Research area that I am highly interested in is looking at how the genetic expressions can be altered by the environment, which ultimately changes behavior in individuals.
