AnnaDorothea (Andie) Asimes is a PhD candidate in Neuroscience at Loyola University Chicago. She grew up in Cleveland and earned her BA in Neuroscience from Kenyon College in 2013 before coming to Chicago. She is entering her fourth year of her PhD, studying how binge alcohol consumption during puberty can cause long-lasting and intergenerational changes in brain function. This research is the first of its kind to investigate the effects of both maternal and paternal preconception alcohol exposure on offspring epigenetics. After completion of her PhD, Andie hopes to start her own lab and continue researching the effects of binge alcohol exposure in the brain.
