Katrina Furth, Ph.D. earned her doctorate in neuroscience at Boston University, performing her dissertation research at the National Institutes of Health. Since graduating, she has worked as an adjunct professor at Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia and at the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC. Her interests include animal models of mental illness, in vivo and in vitro electrophysiology, and the use of ketamine to treat depression, model schizophrenia, and reduce pain. Dr. Furth enjoys educating scientists and non-scientists alike about brain development and leads seminars and talks about the brain of the unborn. She believes that as people come to understand more about embryonic and fetal development, they will be more likely to support life-affirming policies.
