Welcome to the lab!

Dr. Farah Lubin – Email: flubin@uab.edu, neurotree
Dr. Lubin received her undergraduate degree Summa Cum Laude from Alabama State University in Montgomery, Alabama and her Ph.D. in Cell/Molecular Biology and Immunology from Binghamton University in Binghamton, New York. She has also worked as a research assistant at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York.  Dr. Lubin has completed two postdoctoral fellowships in Molecular Neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas and most recently in the Department of Neurobiology at UAB. Dr. Lubin is a recipient of a Pathway to Independence Award from the National Institutes of Health (NIH/NIMH) and FASEB Award. Her research gives insight not only into the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying long-term memory in the healthy brain, but also insights into the fundamental mechanisms that might be deranged in cognitive disorders. Dr. Lubin’s research is primarily directed towards characterizing the role of epigenetic mechanisms and signaling cascades that mediate the interaction of transcription factors like NFkappaB to chromatin, and determining how they participate in the regulation of gene expression as they relate to learning and memory.
