NEUROSCIENCE GRADUATE STUDENTS

Eric Flores

 
Eric Flores

Hometown

Houston, Texas


Education

BS, Chemical Biology (Magna Cum Laude)
Business Management (Minor)

Our Lady of the Lake University - San Antonio, Texas


Lab Association

Nathaniel Jeske, Ph.D.


Hobbies and Interests

Basketball, football, working out, gaming, music


Research

Eric’s research in the Jeske lab focuses on neurobiological signaling mechanisms that mediate somatic sensitivity. His work will help to define how pain-sensing neurons in the periphery communicate inflammatory pain, and how that pain can be remediated via pharmacological alterations to intracellular signaling networks.
