Liz Aulino


I am nonbinary, bisexual and I am a PhD Candidate in behavioral neuroendocrinology.//

I am interested in the ontogeny of social behaviors, sexual dimorphism in the brain, and glia-neuron interactions. Currently, I study how neuropeptides help organize the brain during embryonic development and how that impacts behavioral output in adulthood. I know many queer neuroscientists, but find few of them are out and many are afraid of testing the waters. I am passionate about supporting queer scientists and dispelling the notion that queer scientists are a rarity.
