About Mike:


I obtained a bachelor’s degree in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology from the University of Michigan before coming to Wayne State for my graduate studies. At Wayne State, I earned a Master of Science in Biology with a focus on neurobiology and synaptic transmission. I joined the Greenberg lab in the fall of 2017, where I serve as the manager for day-to-day operations.

In addition to my behind-the-scenes work as manager, I also get my hands dirty helping out with experiments periodically. In this respect, I am particularly interested in understanding how the commonly used bipolar disorder drug valproate alters the physiology of neuronal cells to confer its beneficial effects in patients.

When I’m not in the lab, I love to spend time outdoors, especially on the water or riding my bike. I also enjoy fishing, hiking, and primitive camping in our beautiful state.
