Postdoctoral Fellow, NRSA Fellow
Svitlana Bach is a new postdoctoral fellow in the lab. She received her PhD from Wake Forest School of Medicine where she discovered her passion for molecular mechanisms of learning and memory. She is excited to work on epigenetic regulation of activity-dependent transcription in the nervous system and use cool techniques like single-cell transcriptomics, CRISPR/Cas tools and optogenetics. Svitlana enjoys international travel, hiking with her gigantic dogs and binge-watching Game of Thrones. Svitlana's research in the lab is supported by an Emerging Scholar Award from the Civitan International Research Center and a postdoctoral NRSA from NIMH.

Jen received her Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where she investigated the cellular and molecular mechanisms through which sex-steroid hormones, such as estradiol, regulate learning and memory. In the Day Lab, she hopes to expand on her previous work to examine the epigenetic mechanisms that occur downstream of estradiol-mediated cell signaling activation, and how corresponding changes in gene expression contribute to memory formation in both males and females using gene and epigenetic editing techniques. In her spare time, Jen enjoys traveling, scuba diving, and walking her bulldog.
