Congratulations Kelsey Smith, Ph.D.!

On May 7th, 2018, Neuroscience graduate student Kelsey Smith (pictured left) presented her dissertation defense titled: ‘The medial prefrontal-to-amygdala pathway mediates the enduring anxiolytic effects of adolescent chronic unpredictable stress’ to a lecture hall audience, whose members included her defense committee. She then went through a review of her dissertation and a question and answer process with the defense committee, before she was notified that she had successfully defended her dissertation and would be receiving her Ph.D.!

The Department of Pharmacology held a reception on May 10th, 2018, in the Pharmacology Conference Room, to honor Dr. Smith’s accomplishment. Department of Pharmacology Associate Professor, Daniel Lodge, Ph.D. (above, right), recognized Kelsey’s accomplishments and contributions as a Neuroscience graduate student. In addition, the Graduate School Dean’s Office presented Kelsey with another gift…a new leather briefcase!

Kelsey graciously thanked everyone for their support.

Congratulations Dr. Deana Apple, Ph.D.!!!
