Brief Biography

My name is Megan Tomasch. I am originally from Long Island, New York, but grew up in northern New Jersey. I received a B.S. in Integrative Neuroscience from Binghamton University (SUNY Binghamton) in 2019. During my time as an undergraduate, I worked as a research assistant in a lab that investigates the genetic and biological underpinnings of addiction. I received an award for distinguished independent work on my undergraduate honors thesis entitled “Sex differences in the motivation to self-administer cocaine in a panel of inbred mice.” I am now a UMaine GSBSE graduate student working in Dr. Christoph Straub’s lab at UNE, studying chronic pain. I hope to one day pair this with my background in addiction, to investigate opioid addictions.
