SBCNY Fellow Spotlights
Jayanth Krishnan Roy Song, currently enrolled in the PhD program at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, is the first author of a study published in the journal PNAS, titled "ERK Regulation of Phosphodiesterase 4 Enhances Dopamine-stimulated AMPA Receptor Membrane Insertion".
Jayanth Krishnan Jayanth Krishnan, currently enrolled in the Accelerated Physician-Scientist Program (BS/MD) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Albany Medical College, is a recipient of a 2011 Davidson Scholarship. Jay, who conducted research under the mentorship of SBCNY Investigator Avi Ma'ayan, was the winner in the Engineering category at the Westchester Science and Engineering Fair (WESEF). His project was selected as one of the top eight overall projects which earned him a trip to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF).
