[Joined NSP Faculty, Fall 2018]
Daniel McKim is the most recent addition to the Animal Sciences department starting as an assistant professor in November 2018. He completed doctoral (2017) and postdoctoral (2018) training at The Institute for Behavioral Medicine Research at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. His doctoral work, in the labs of John Sheridan and Jonathan Godbout focused on the hematopoietic regulation of stress-induced behaviors in rodent models. His postdoctoral work in the Godbout lab pertained to microglial regulation of synaptic loss in aged mice following administration of the dementia causing peptide, amyloid beta. The McKim lab will study the effect of stress-induced myelopoiesis and microglial activation on the exacerbation of health and behavior.
