Meet the Chair

Dr. Michelle M. Adams

Program Director

I did my undergraduate degree in Psychology and became interested the biological basis of behavior. After I completed my undergraduate degree, I went onto a PhD in Neuroscience, specifically Neurobiology, where I focused on understanding the biological basis of cognitive changes in the aging brain and how we can prevent them from happening.  I am currently using the zebrafish as a model organism to detect the neurobiological changes in the aged brain apply these interventions. I have both MSc and PhD students working in my laboratory focused on these questions.
