Danielle is a doctoral candidate in the cognitive and neuroscience areas in the lab of Dr. Ronald Duman. She is investigating the molecular and cellular actions of stress, depression and antidepressants. Specifically, Danielle is interested in rapid acting agents in the treatment of depression. Her research focuses on investigating the mechanism of action of ketamine, a rapid acting antidepressant, with a specific interest in the drugs actions in the prefrontal cortex. To answer these questions, Danielle conducts experiments using animal models and cell-type specific targeting through viral and optogenetic techniques.
