The Rankin Lab welcomes its newest member, Benazir Sardar! Benazir is our new volunteer research assistant. She is a recent graduate from Willamette University, with a BA in Psychology and minor in Studio Art. She wishes to broaden her understanding of dementia and its physiological and psychological effects. Benazir hopes to get a PsyD in Geropsychology, but meanwhile she enjoys the freedom to travel, make art, and of course, study for the GRE! Welcome to the team, Benazir!
