Natalia Gonzales, who did her undergraduate work at Williams College and is currently a graduate student in the Human Genetics Graduate Program, has joined the Palmer lab. She will be the third graduate student in the lab and the second from the Human Genetics Graduate Program. She is supported by the Genetics and Regulation Training Grant. Welcome, Natalia!
The review article, “Pavlovian fear memory circuits and phenotype models of PTSD,” has been published in Neuropharmacology. Dr. Palmer is a co-author along with Luke Johnson, Jennifer McGuire, and Rachel Lazarus.
Article co-authored by Dr. Clarissa Parker, Dr. Riyan Cheng, and Dr. Abraham Palmer published in Mammalian Genome
The article, “Fine-mapping alleles for body weight in LG/J × SM/J F2 and F34 advanced intercross lines,” has been published in Mammalian Genome. Dr. Clarissa Parker, Dr. Riyan Cheng, and Dr. Abraham Palmer are co-authors along with Greta Sokoloff, Jackie E. Lim, Andrew D. Skol, and Mark Abney.
This paper was a team effort to use body weight data that we’d collected as part of the methamphetamine studies. Since these animals had been selected for divergent body size prior to inbreeding, we figured there would be a number of relevant alleles.

The talk was called “Using Intermediate Phenotypes to Bridge the Gap Between Human and Mouse Genetics” and was part of symposium titled “Unraveling Genetic Influences on Substance Misuse: The Intermediate Phenotype”. Details can be found here.
This is the first R01 that I’ve ever had to renew, luckily I got it on the first try! The grant was funded by NIDA and is titled “Systems genetic analysis of methamphetamine’s motivational effects in a mouse AIL” and includes more than $1.4 in direct costs from 2011-2016.
