Anastasia Sorokina

Anastasia Sorokina is a senior in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, double majoring in Molecular and Cellular Biology and Psychology, with a concentration in Behavioral Neuroscience and Certificates in Neuroscience and Undergraduate Research. She started in the Rhodes lab in the Spring of 2015 with interest in drug interactions and behavior in a mouse model for ADHD. For her honors thesis project, she is currently working on analyzing the molecular genetic basis of an ADHD-like phenotype in a selectively bred mouse model. Starting May 2017, Anastasia began working as a full-time Research Technician in the laboratory.
