Gordon is a MD/PhD student with a background in behavioral neuroscience. As an undergraduate at Tulane University, he explored the neurobiological tenants of behavior from a memory-systems perspective in Dr. Paul Colombo’s Neurobiology of Learning and Memory Laboratory. Upon graduation in 2012, Gordon received an Intramural Research Training Award from the National Institutes of Health, and joined Dr. Peter Rapp’s Laboratory of Behavioral Neuroscience at the National Institute on Aging where he was able to further investigate basic biological mechanisms of memory, especially as they relate to functional changes that occur during the normal aging process. Gordon is currently interested in characterizing the role that microglia play in mediating HIV-associated neurocognitive dysfunction in order to identify key targets for therapeutic intervention.
