    2021 Spring

    Jaron Harmon

    Internship Description

    Industry: Education

    Company: University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences

    Location: Grand Forks, North Dakota

    Semester: 2021 Spring

    Paid/unpaid: Unknown

    Summary: During my internship, my research project focused on dopamine transporter ventilation, also known as "debt." The addition of the fatty acid palmitate to debt at position 16580 reduces degradation and increases its transport rate. This increased ventilation affects the duration and strength of dopamine signals transmitted between neurons, which can have implications for dopamine-related conditions such as psychiatric disorders, neurological disorders, and addictions.
