Congratulations to Amie Severino Alexander, PhD!
Amie Severino Alexander is now a doctor! Well, she defended her
thesis in the Fall of 2016 but came back to Winston-Salem for commencement on a
beautiful Spring day in 2017. Her work on the role of spinal oxytocin
signaling in regulating the speed of recovery from hypersensitivity after
surgery in rodents is important and will stand as an outstanding example of the

analgesia. She is currently a post-doctoral fellow at UCLA and enjoying
the 13 mile commute by bicycle to work!
