Gloria Laryea received her B.Sc (Hons) in Biology from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, MD in 2008. She went on to obtain her PhD in 2014 under the mentorship of Dr. Louis Muglia at Vanderbilt University where she studied the molecular neurobiology of the stress response and its consequent maladaptive behavior. She joined the Chudasama lab at NIMH in Feb 2016 as postdoctoral fellow interested in studying the neural circuitry governing cognitive and executive function as it relates to complex human behavior, thus examining how dysfunction in these circuits affect neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders. In addition to her scientific interest, Dr. Laryea enjoys trying out new recipes and urban music and dance.
