Andyshea Afyouni

Andrew (Andyshea) is a Neuroscience major and Biomedical Research minor at UCLA. In high school, Andrew investigated the role of the dorsal medial hypothalamus in exaggerated cardiac reflex responses in the Longhurst laboratory at UCI.  Andrew is now working with the Butler Laboratory to designing ways to rebuild the sensory circuits of the spinal cord through stem cell-derived sensory neurons.  In his down time, Andrew loves singing, enjoys eating acai bowls, and cherishes any time he can spend with his two dogs and 2-year-old niece back in Irvine.

Andy is now medical student at UCI.
