STEM Squad Profile: Nour Al-muhtasib
Nour is a postdoctoral associate in neuroscience at Yale University. She got her PhD in pharmacology and BS in biochemistry. Currently she is studying how cannabinoids (think THC!) modulate cortical circuits using electrophysiology. She aspires to remain in academia and become a professor. Mentoring and teaching students are just much a passion of hers as research. As evident by her social media accounts, she feels strongly about making academia a more inclusive place and the importance of taking care of your mental health.
