Erik M. Kolb
Ph.D. Candidate, Physiology
I am interested in animal physiology and neurobiology, and am presently finalizing my dissertaton proposal. I serve as a teaching assistant and as a graduate research assistant in the Garland lab. My dissertation research plans include exploring the possibility that mice from Ted Garland's high-activity selected lines may exhibit differences in dopamine transporters and/or receptors. I also participate in other projects with the high-activity mouse lines, one of which has recently been accepted for publication:

G. S. Kassab, T. Garland, Jr., and J. Y.-J. Shyy.
