Mark Baxter, PhD
Tristan Fehr, PhD
Following undergraduate degrees in Biology and Psychology at Arizona State University, I accepted a Fulbright Fellowship to Madrid, Spain where I continued building my foundations in neuroscience research before beginning my doctoral training in Neuroscience at Mount Sinai. My prior research spans epigenetics, neuropsychiatric illness including depression, and the gut-brain axis. Currently, I focus my efforts on understanding the neural effects of multiple anesthesia exposures on the developing brain, using electron microscopy as a primary tool.
