Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital:

Neuroscience Department

1.Martine Faustin (Class of 2019)

Worked in the Lab of Molecular Psychiatry with Dr. Nestler studying the neurobiological mechanisms of drug addiction. Using animal models, the impact of different cocaine regimens on dendritic spines of male and female subjects is analyzed. Immunostaining and confocal imaging techniques are applied.

2. Meaghan Janis (Class of 2021)

Worked in the Lab of Perceptual & Cognitive Development with Dr. Morishita. With animal models, the lab hopes to identify the mechanisms of developmental critical periods to establish perception and cognition relevant to neuro-developmental and psychiatric disorders. Molecular, anatomical, imaging, and electrophysiological methodologies are applied.

3. Gabriela Simonghini

Offered a position in the Lab of Perceptual & Cognitive Development with Dr. Morishita. With animal models, the lab hopes to identify the mechanisms of developmental critical periods to establish perception and cognition relevant to neuro-developmental and psychiatric disorders. Molecular, anatomical, imaging, and electrophysiological methodologies are applied.

4. Samantha ODonoghue (Class of 2021)

Offered a position in the Lab of Perceptual & Cognitive Development with Dr. Morishita. With animal models, the lab hopes to identify the mechanisms of developmental critical periods to establish perception and cognition relevant to neuro-developmental and psychiatric disorders. Molecular, anatomical, imaging, and electrophysiological methodologies are applied.

Columbia University Medical Center

Irving Cancer Research Center

5. Stephanie Constant (Class of 2019)

Worked at the Irving Cancer Research Center in the lab of Dr. Mendelsohn. The lab looks for urothelial progenitors important for formation, homeostasis and regeneration of the urothelium, and identification of urothelial cell types that give rise to bladder cancers. Applied skills include inSitu hybridization, gel electrophoresis and Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR).

McLean Hospital /Harvard University

American Board of Sport Psychology

6. Nada Rbil (Class of 2019)

Worked with Dr. Carlstedt at the American Board of Sport Psychology (ABSP) . The ABSP works to advance practice, education and training standards in the field of applied sport psychology. Training is also provided in research methods and procedures in the area of sport psychology, biomarker and technology guided applied sport psychology, exercise psychology and integrative health.
