University of the Pacific, USA
Dr. Venderova is an Assistant Professor at the University of the Pacific, with expertise in neuropharmacology and neurogenetics. Her research is centered on pathogenesis of neurodegenerative processes in an effort to find effective disease-modifying treatments. She received several international awards and fellowships in recognition of her work, such as the Melvin Yahr Fellowship, the Junior Faculty Award, and the Parkinson Society Canada basic research postdoctoral fellowship. She authored four textbook chapters, presented her findings at a number of invited talks, and serves as a reviewer for several highly respected journals and grant agencies.
