History and Education (Theme J) and Neural Excitability, Synapses, and Glia (Theme B) Blogger: Alexandra Colón-Rodríguez
My name is Alexandra Colón-Rodríguez and I’m a postdoctoral trainee in the Genome Center at the University of California, Davis.
I’m a neurotoxicologist and my research interests are focused on understanding how gene/environment (G x E) interactions can contribute to neurological disease, specifically focused on alterations in neurotransmission. I am also very interested in science communication and outreach; specifically, when used as a tool to encourage minorities to pursue careers in science. You can learn about my outreach efforts on my page: https://www.alexandracr.com/outreach.html
I’m looking forward to sharing some highlights in the areas of History and Education (Theme J), and Neural Excitability, Synapses, and Glia (Theme B) on my blog posts.
