Pharmacodynamics professor to lead First Friday Seminar
OSU-CHS will host a nationally recognized expert in pharmacodynamics for the First Friday Seminar on Oct. 3 at noon in D-107.
Eric G. Krause, Ph.D., assistant professor in the College of Pharmacy at the University of Florida, will present “Identification of neuronal circuits that promote susceptibility or resiliency to psychology stress: insights gained from the watering hole.”
Krause studies the effect stress has on the central nervous system and how the human body coordinates its response to stressors. He is particularly interested in how dehydration impacts the nervous system’s stress regulation response and mood.
The October First Friday Seminar is hosted by Kathleen Curtis, Ph.D., associate professor of physiology in the Department of Pharmacology and Physiology. The event is free and open to the public.
