Hannah Mayberry

Ph.D. Student

Hannah Mayberry is a first-year graduate student in the Brain and Cognitive Sciences doctoral program. Prior to joining Dr. Wimmer's lab, Hannah earned her B.S. in Biology from Virginia Commonwealth University. During her undergraduate studies, Hannah also interned at the Virginia Institute for Psychiatric and Behavioral Genetics. Following graduation, Hannah worked for two years as a full-time Research Assistant at the Clinical Behavioral Pharmacology Lab. These experiences introduced Hannah to the biopsychosocial factors contributing to substance abuse and anxiety disorders; both of which are research themes she hopes to expand upon in graduate school. Hannah is specifically interested in examining the neural and epigenetic mechanisms contributing to maintenance of drug addiction and propensity for relapse.
