Graduate Student Excellence-in-Research Award 2008
Elizabeth Hohnadel, a recent doctoral graduate in clinical and experimental therapeutics, used behavioral, pharmacological, and cellular techniques to research the roles of cholinergic neuronal systems in memory. Using animal models to help define these roles, Hohnadel gained important insights into the treatment of debilitating neurological diseases such as Alzheimers’ and schizophrenia. Hohnadel has already published nine peer-reviewed journal articles, two of which credited her as first author, in two major journals. She currently has two more articles under review.
