Jordan came to UIC in 2018 as an MD/PhD student in UIC’s Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP). Currently, Jordan is a PhD candidate preparing her dissertation for the Graduate Program in Neuroscience. Prior to joining the CLEAR lab, Jordan graduated from Vanderbilt University with double majors in Neuroscience and Child Development, then completed a post-baccalaureate research fellowship at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), studying sex differences in brain development across puberty. Under Dr. Eisenlohr-Moul's training, Jordan has studied how the menstrual cycle interacts with modulators of GABAergic systems, including alcohol use and neuroactive steroids.  For her dissertation research, Jordan is interested in identifying if sensitivity of the GABA-A receptor serves as a peripheral biomarker of menstrual cycle-related psychiatric symptoms.After defending her PhD in Neuroscience, Jordan will return to medical school with the goal of becoming a primary care physician who focuses on the intersection of mental and reproductive healthcare.
