Demetrius, a 2019 Temple graduate, majored in neuroscience and pursued research opportunities with great enthusiasm during his time at Temple. As a Diamond Research Scholar , he worked with Dr. Debra Bangasser in the psychology department and neuroscience program to research the sex-specific effects of multiple life stressors on development and cognition in rats. Demetrius was one of 60 students selected from across the U.S. to share his research with members of Congress and their staff at the Council on Undergraduate Research's Posters on the Hill event this past spring.
