Position title: Graduate Student, Medical Scientist Training Program and Clinical Psychology
Claire hopes that her research will help to understand why two children with the same diagnosis may not respond to the same medications or therapies. Her research focuses on characterizing emotion regulation circuits that might be targeted by different kinds of treatment. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Neuroscience at Pomona College in California with minors in Psychology and French. Then she spent a few years in Washington, D.C. working for the National Institutes of Health. Now she is back home in the midwest working towards her M.D./Ph.D at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
