The Effects of Cannabidiol in Microglial Activation.
  • Biography

Tanya is originally from Long Island, but left to receive her B.A. in Biology from SUNY Potsdam. She then continued her studies at the University at Albany, where she earned an M.S. in Biomedical Sciences/Molecular Genetics. Her research examined peptide epitopes for use as potential diagnostic targets for Cystic Fibrosis screening of newborns. After gaining experience in clinical laboratories, she decided to return to school to pursue a career in research. Tanya is currently investigating the effects of cannabidiol in microglial activation.
