We are excited to have Dr. Sarah Gombsh Lampe join the Department of Neuroscience faculty as Assistant Professor-Clinical beginning August 1, 2020.
Prior to returning to Ohio State University, Dr. Gombash Lampe was a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at Ohio Wesleyan University. She taught courses in Behavioral Neuroscience, Clinical Neuroscience, Introductory Neuroscience and Psychology. As a postdoctoral researcher at Ohio State University, Dr. Gombash Lampe co-directed a course in contemporary topics in neuroscience, designed a History of Neuroscience course, and guest-lectured in various neuroscience courses.
Dr. Gombash Lampe graduated with a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of Cincinnati. Her early research focused on gene therapies and development of novel animal models for Parkinson’s Disease. She continued onto two postdoctoral positions at Ohio State University. During her first postdoctoral fellowship she investigated gastrointestinal dysfunction in pediatric neuromuscular disease and gene therapy delivery to the nervous system in the gastrointestinal tract with Dr. Kevin Foust. In her second postdoctoral position, her research focused on neuroinflammation and the role of early life vitamin D in susceptibility to Multiple Sclerosis with Dr. Amy Lovett-Racke.
In her new position, Dr. Gombash Lampe will be focusing on teaching and developing neuroscience courses and curricula. She has a passion for making neuroscience accessible and approachable for all students.
Welcome Dr. Gombash Lampe!
