Allison Doyle Brackley, PhD
Born and raised in Texas, I reside in the Texas hill country with my husband and our dogs (a great dane, mastiff rescue, beloved mutt). Prior degrees I've obtained include two Bachelor of Science degrees, Biochemistry and Nutrition, and a Minor in General Science from Texas Woman's University in December 2010. Shortly after college, I enrolled in the Integrated Multidisciplinary Graduate Program in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UT Health). My dissertation research was conducted in the lab of Nathaniel A. Jeske, PhD in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. March 30, 2017, I successfully defended my dissertation titled Awakening A DORmant Receptor. In May 2017, I received my PhD in Pharmacology as part of UT Health's Neuroscience Program.
Although my dissertation research was focused on the analgesic role of opioid receptors, my postdoctoral fellowship targets the opioid system from an abuse perspective.
