AimeeV2Aimee Franklin Biography
I attended Southeastern University in Lakeland Florida for my undergraduate degree. I am originally from Alabama therefore the decision to attend UAB for graduate school was an easy one to make. I was aware of the outstanding reputation UAB had as top notch research institution and already knew I loved the city. I chose to join Dr. Lori McMahon’s laboratory where I have been studying the pathological mechanisms underlying deficits in cognition and synaptic plasticity in Fragile X Syndrome, an inherited form of mental retardation. I am graduating in the spring and will be moving to Baltimore for a post-doctoral fellowship at NIH where I will continue researching synaptic plasticity in the context of drug addiction.
