PREP scholar

Whitney is passionate about understanding the neurobiological and physiological mechanisms of depression and anxiety, to provide new diagnostic tools and therapeutics. She views her time in the Hultman Lab as "the perfect opportunity to learn about the cellular and molecular mechanisms of depression vulnerability and susceptibility using single-cell RNA sequencing." It is her hope to continue to study mental health disorders through a multidisciplinary approach as she begins her journey in the Graduate Program in Neuroscience at UICĀ in Chicago.
