Denise Cook Snyder
Assistant Professor of Biology
I joined TEACRS after completing my PhD in Neuroscience at the University of Pennsylvania.
As a TEACRS postdoctoral fellows, I worked with Leon Reijmers, in the Department of Neuroscience at Tufts Medical School. My research focused on identifying novel molecular mechanisms underlying learning and memory, with a specific focus on changes in neuronal gene expression and protein function during memory formation, storage, and erasure.
As part of the TEACRS Program, I taught an upper level course on the Molecular Basis of Disease at UMass - Boston.
I am continuing my career as Assistant Professor of Biology at Carthage College.
