Jhoan graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in Biology. He is now a Ph.D. student in the Graduate Program of Neuroscience. Jhoan is interested in investigating the molecular role of addiction and he is currently rotating in the lab of Dr. Amynah Pradhan.
Zach received his Bachelors in Molecular and Cellular Biology from University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana in 2016. He joined the lab in 2016 and his work focuses on the effect of delta opioid receptors on cortical spreading depression and migraine as a whole.
Isaac received his PhD in Pharmacology from University of Michigan in 2017. He joined the lab in 2017 and is investigating how neuropeptides and opioid signaling regulate migraine-associated pain.
Elizaveta received her Bachelors in Molecular and Cellular Biology and Chemistry from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2019. She joined the Pradhan Lab in 2020 and her work focuses on the effect of delta opioid receptors on opioid induced hyperalgesia, cortical spreading depression, and migraine.
Laura received her BSc in Neuroscience and Spanish in 2014 from Agnes Scott College, and joined the lab in 2015. For her thesis project, she is studying how delta opioid receptor activation regulates headache-associated pain using mouse models of post-traumatic headache, chronic migraine, medication overuse headache, and opioid-induced hyperalgesia.
Kendra received her BS in Genomics and Molecular Genetics from Michigan State University in 2012. She joined the lab in 2017 and is the general lab manager.
Wiktor is currently an undergraduate student at the University of Illinois at Chicago, working towards a BS in Neuroscience. He is a member of the Honors College, and joined the lab in 2017. He is working on the role of delta opioid receptors in migraine.
