Dr. Isabel de Araujo Salgado

2019 CCB Fellow

Isabel De Araujo Salgado earned her Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of Fribourg (Switzerland) where she studied neuronal circuits matching body metabolic signals and behaviors using electrophysiology, behavioral testing, chemogenetics, circuit mapping, and viral vector technologies. Since graduating in 2018, she has taken a postdoctoral position in the laboratory of Dr. Michael Krashes at NIDDK. There, she investigates the integration of metabolic states and external cues to combat states of compulsivity – specifically, the neuronal circuits orchestrating the choice between eating and threat avoidance.
