My project is exploring the potential relationship between AMPA receptors and the Retromer protein Vps35 as deficiencies or mutations in Retromer are commonly associated with neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s. This relationship would not only further elucidate the cellular mechanism of opioid-associated memory; it would also expand the importance of Retromer function in CNS neurons. Additionally, I manage our lab’s animal colonies and conduct any molecular or genetics work the lab requires.

Outside of lab my many hobbies include hockey (St Louis Blues), golf, guitar, going to concerts, watching movies/Netflix, spending time with my niece and nephew, going to car shows, and helping my dad rebuild his 1957 Chevy BelAir /my 1972 Dodge Dart Swinger
