GeraldinE KRESS PhD

Currently, I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurology at Washington University School of Medicine.  In my lab, we use a combination of approaches ranging from various behavioral assays to measuring the electrical communication at synapses in order to investigate how the circadian system influences the limbic system during Alzheimer's disease progression and aging.  The lab is expanding and we are actively recruiting for graduate student, post-doc, and research technician positions.  There are several ongoing projects to work on depending on your skill set.  Contact me if you are interested in working on the circadian system, Alzheimer's disease pathogenesis, and synaptic plasticity mechanisms.  We are members of Hope Center for Neurological Diseases and the Division of Biology and Biological Sciences, neuroscience program.
