Project Description: Kwaku Kyere is African-American and graduated in May 2009 with a B.S. in Psychology from Columbia University. The ARRA minority supplement allowed me to hire Kwaku and thus to increase the diversity of the scientific workforce in my laboratory and in the Department. Kwaku started his work in my lab as a full time research assistant on September 1, 2009. As the Principal Investigator of the parent grant, I mentor and supervise his work. In the past month, Kwaku was introduced to the various lab procedures and has started to participate in the experiments. The training and career development will enable Kwaku to learn multiple neurobiological techniques and to acquire substantial knowledge on the development and neural bases of behavior, with a focus on fear and psychopathology.
