Dr. Bobadilla speaks about her journey to the Society of Neuroscience, where she found her post-doctorate job through networking and presenting there. This year, she heads back to the conference which takes place in San Diego and will once again be showcasing her work.
It was after presenting her work at the Society for Neuroscience conference in 2014 that she met Dr. Kalivas who asked her to start her first post-doctoral year at MUSC. Her study focuses on understanding the activity of the brain as it experiences a "trigger" that results in the relapse of drug addiction.
