Dr. Warren received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. from Florida State University. He then completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the National Institute on Drug Abuse in Baltimore, MD. Dr. Warren’s lab integrates behavioral, biochemical, and microscopic approaches to probe the role of neuronal ensembles (patterns of neurons activated during behavior) in animal models of drug addiction.
Louisa graduated from University of Michigan with a degree in Biopsychology, Cognition, and Neuroscience, where she worked in the lab of Dr. Martin Sarter studying individual differences in the propensity to attribute incentive salience onto Pavlovian drug cues. She is currently studying neuronal ensembles associated with food and cocaine-associated cues. She hopes to pursue a dual-mentored PhD. in Clinical Psychology and Behavioral Neuroscience.
Richard obtained his B.S. in Cellular and Molecular Biology from the University of Puerto Rico, where he worked for two years with Dr. Karen G. Martínez-González conducting clinical and translational research on anxiety disorders. He then worked for two years with Dr. Bruce T. Hope as a post-baccalaureate fellow at the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), NIH. At NIDA, he studied neuronal ensembles associated with cue-induced reinstatement of cocaine and heroin seeking. His goals include pursuing a PhD and a career in Academia.
