Karina's CV

I’m an undergraduate student, majoring in Biology at American University. My research interests include drug abuse and child drug exposure. I began working in Dr. Riley’s psychopharmacology lab in Fall of 2019. I am currently assisting Hayley Manke’s project that examines the effect of methylone pre-exposure on MDPV, MDMA, and Fluoxetine-induced taste aversions.

After my undergraduate degree, I plan to go to medical school to become a pediatric physician. Likewise, I would also like to continue medical mission trips to serve underrepresented children in Central America who suffer from serious medical conditions. Some of these conditions include neurological and developmental impairments.
