Images from Atlanta Chapter ARCS Scholar's work appear on cover of Molecular Psychiatry

Posted on Tuesday, June 3, 2014

Jill Glausier was an ARCS Scholar at Emory University during the 2006-2008 academic years. Upon completion of her Ph.D., Dr. Glausier accepted an offer as a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Translational Neuroscience Program at the University of Pittsburgh under the mentorship of Dr. David Lewis. Dr. Lewis’s laboratory is world renowned for studies investigating the cortical circuitry deficits underlying cognitive dysfunction in individuals with schizophrenia.

Since joining the lab, Dr. Glausier has been awarded an individual postdoctoral National Service Research Award (NRSA) from the National Institute of Mental Health, and published manuscripts in Neuropsychopharmacology, Biological Psychiatry, Neuroscience, and Trends in Neuroscience. Her most recent publication in Molecular Psychiatry “was the first quantitative assessment of pre- and postsynaptic integrity of any type of specific neuronal connection in schizophrenia subjects. Images from this study were chosen for the cover of the January 2014 edition of Molecular Psychiatry.

Dr. Glausier plans to “continue elucidating the underlying pathophysiology contributing to the debilitating cognitive deficits individuals with schizophrenia must endure.”
