Scott Jones, Ph.D.
Scott graduated from Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas in 2012 with degrees in Biology and Psychology. Scott spent a year working as an alcohol/drug technician at a rehabilitation center in Topeka, Kansas before moving to Oregon and enrolling in the Department of Behavioral Neuroscience at OHSU.

Angie Morales, Ph.D.
Angie obtained at B.A. in Human Biology from Stanford University and Ph.D. in Neuroscience from UCLA. After completing a postdoctoral fellowship at UCLA, Angie joined the Developmental Brain Imaging Lab in 2016. Angie is interested in using multimodal brain imaging to determine how neurobiological adaptations during the early stages of drug experimentation influence the emergence of substance use disorders. In particular, she is interested in how nicotine exposure during adolescence and emerging adulthood impacts future risk for substance use disorders.
