Madeline (Maddie) Clark is a Ph.D. candidate in the Neurobiology program here at Duke. She is interested in understanding how environmental experiences, such as stress or drugs of abuse, alter gene regulation and brain development. Originally from Minnesota, she completed her BS in Psychology at the University of Massachusetts Boston where she spent three years as an undergraduate research assistant in a Neuroepigenetics and Genomics laboratory.  She recognizes the impact a well timed mentor or advisor can have on a young person’ss life, and as such feels passionately about teaching, mentorship, community, and making resources for student development accessible.
