Erica Vohol

Research Assistant I

My name is Erica Vohol and I just graduated from MTSU with my BS in Psychology and Neuroscience. I have been at VUMC for about a year and a half as a Lab Assistant in the main Diagnostic Laboratory here. I am hoping to pursue a career in neuroscience research and hopefully become a tenured professor when all is said and done, so it's going to be a long journey, but I think that this is a great start for research experience! I have done EEG research with children with learning disabilities and worked with mice to study the effects of oxytocin on dopamine levels, so I am excited to try this field, as I am interested in autoimmune diseases that effect the immune system like MS.
