Company: Duke University

Job title: Post-Doctoral Fellow Bohorquez Lab


Maya received her Ph.D. in Cellular and Molecular Physiology from Yale University. For her doctoral work she used RNA sequencing technology to define how inflammation affects vagal nodose neurons. As a postdoctoral fellow in the Bohórquez Laboratory, Maya uses Single Cell Sequencing and intravital imaging to discern how sensory function in the gut is integrated by the vagus nerve. Maya’s ambition is to become an independent scientist in the field of sensory neurobiology
