Sophie Ackerman

WiSys Ambassador | UW-River Falls

My name is Sophie Ackerman. I am a junior at the UW-River Falls, double majoring in neuroscience and biology. I have been involved with research since I started at UW-River Falls, first with an ongoing study regarding the connection between the medial prefrontal cortex and depression symptoms in a rat model and now with my own project regarding the connection between digestive health and anxiety and depression symptoms in a rat model. I am very passionate about research and I’m very excited to be a part of an organization that helps students and faculty to get involved with research opportunities. I hope to expand my understanding of other fields of study as I assist with their research endeavors. (Updated 9-3-2019)
