New Graduate Student - Andrew Ortiz

Jefferson Kinney

The Neurobiology of Disease and Behavior laboratory welcomes it's newest graduate student, Andrew Ortiz. As a native to Las Vegas with an impressive background in neuroscience research, the Kinney Lab is excited to welcome Andrew! Ortiz graduated from UNLV with a major in psychology and a minor in  neuroscience. His research path began in the Hyman In Vivo electrophysiology laboratory under the supervision of Dr. James Hyman where he focused on investigating the systematic synchronization of brain function. Andrew's current research initiatives will include the investigation of glia cells (e.g. microglia and astrocytes), diabetes, and how that pertains to chronic neuroinflamation and neurodegenerative disease models. Welcome Andrew!
