Dr. Angy Kallarackal

PhD in Neuroscience

My name is Angy Kallarackal. I have long been interested in how chemicals, those that are in our bodies and those that we ingest, change our behavior. I received a PhD in Neuroscience from the University of Maryland where I studied the short-term and long-term effects of antidepressants on animal brains. I am currently a research fellow at the University of Utah, studying genes that affect responses to nicotine and I teach Drugs and Behavior in the Psychology department.
