Doris P. Molina, PhD - PRIME Program

Doris Molina PhD
Doris P. Molina completed her B.S. in Biology in 2003 at Elon University. She later initiated her doctoral training at Wake Forest University Health Sciences. For her doctoral research, Doris studied the effect of GH on age-related changes in excitatory synaptic transmission in the hippocampus. Upon completion of her studies she was awarded her Ph.D. from the Neurobiology and Anatomy program at Wake Forest University Health Sciences in April 2010. She was then awarded the RJR Leon-Golberg Post-doctoral Fellowship which enabled her to study the role of the G-protein coupled proton sensing receptor GPR4 in renal function. In addition to her research work, Doris has taught middle and high school as well as undergraduate students to further her teaching skills. Currently, she is a PRIME-IRACDA scholar at Wake Forest University School of Medicine and her research focuses on understanding the electrophysiological mechanisms underlying alcohol withdrawal-induced seizures.
