Angela Brennan, Ph.D.
I started in Dr. Swanson's lab as a post-doc fellow in February, 2006. I received my Ph.D. from the University of
New Mexico School of Medicine in Neuroscience in 2005, where I worked with Dr. Bill Shuttleworth. The main focus
of the lab at that particular time was monitoring hippocampal function in acute murine slice preparations using
intrinsic fluorescence imaging and simultaneous extracellular field recordings during various physiological and

My current interests are focused predominantly on ellucidating mechanisms which underlie neuronal cell death during
ischemic conditions, or disease processes which are associated with metabolic and/or mitochondrial failure.
