In the Spotlight
Apryl Pooley, a graduate student in the Jordan-Breedlove lab, has been selected as a speaker at the TedxMSU event on March 4. Apryl will discuss her work on the biological mechanisms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Her research goal is to determine how experiencing a traumatic event affects people differently, leading to the development of PTSD in some individuals but not in others. In addition to the Tedx talk, Apryl is also a recently published author. Visit the TedxMSU website for more information about the event.
