Josh Hinkle received his Ph.D. in Neuroscience at the University of Rochester under the guidance of Prof. Kerry O’Banion. His research focused on the effects of radiation on healthy rodent brains; both clinically relevant doses in response to tumor burden as well as space radiation to mimic the exposure to astronauts during deep space flight. His dissertation focused specifically on how cranial irradiation induces microglial activation and elevated complement levels that correlate with dendritic spine loss and subsequent cognitive impairment in mice. Following his Ph.D., Josh joined Dr. Brandon Harvey at the National Institute of Drug Abuse as a PostDoctoral Fellow in October 2020 and is currently exploring how SARS-CoV proteins can modulate ER homeostasis.
