In this presentation, Dr. Ashley Kopec will discuss published work examining the role of microglia, the resident immune cells in the brain, in neural and social development during adolescence in male and female rats. Then, she will discuss unpublished work aimed at understanding how opioid exposures during adolescence interact with microglia-mediated development to alter future reward-related behaviors.

There will be a virtual trainee meeting with Dr. Kopec immediately following her talk (~noon). If you would like to attend the trainee meeting please email annie.ciernia@ubc.ca to sign up. There are limited spots available on a first come first serve basis.
