Nathan Winters

Graduate Student, Patel Laboratory
BS, University of Evansville (2016)


I grew up in Evansville, IN, where I received my BS in Neuroscience from the University of Evansville in 2016. I came to Vanderbilt in the fall of 2016, where I am currently a graduate student in the laboratory of Dr. Sachin Patel. I am broadly interested in the synaptic physiology of neuromodulatory signaling systems, and my current works centers around characterizing how the endocannabinoid signaling system regulates synaptic transmission in brain areas relevant to stress-related neuropsychiatric disorders. Outside of the lab, I enjoy hiking, fishing, and exploring the music scene.
