Dr. Lenora Volk received her B.S. in Biochemistry from Oklahoma State University where she studied the role of the chaperone protein HSP90 in regulating kinase folding and signal transduction under the mentorship of Dr. Steven Harston and Dr. Robert Matts. She obtained her Ph.D. in Neuroscience from UT Southwestern Medical Center under the guidance of Dr. Kimberly Huber, where she studied the signaling mechanisms underlying synaptic plasticity mediated by Gq-coupled glutamate (mGluR) and acetylcholine (mAChR) receptors, and identified a novel aberration in mAChR-LTD in the mouse model of Fragile X Syndrome.
