Carina Block, PhD
Postdoctoral Associate

Carina BlockCarina received her bachelor’s from the University of California, San Diego and received her PhD in Neuroscience from Duke University. During her graduate studies, she made groundbreaking, mechanistic discoveries revealing how combined exposure to air pollution and maternal stress during pregnancy increases the risk for abnormal brain development in male offspring. Carina is continuing her postdoctoral studies at Duke, as a joint postdoc in the Eroglu and Bagnat lab. She is investigating how intestinal macromolecule transport in neonates regulates neuroimmune development. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family, playing with her pets, preparing for Halloween, and eating tasty food.
