TEACRS Alumnus - 2015





I joined the TEACRS program after completing my PhD in Neuroscience at the University of Texas - San Antonio. 

As a TEACRS fellow, I worked with Chris Dulla, PhD where I focused on the regulation of astrocytic glutamate reuptake proteins in the neonatal and injured brain. Different astrocytic proteins mediate glutamate reuptake at different developmental time points. I worked to upregulate one of the important glutamate reuptake proteins in hopes of minimizing the damage to the injured neonatal brain.  

As part of the TEACRS Program, I taught Cell Biology with lecture and lab at Bunker Hill Community College.

I am currently Associate Director of Medical Affairs at Sunovion Pharmaceuticals.
