ASu school of life sciences | associate research scientist


Dr. Baluch received her PhD in Cellular and Developmental Biology and postdoctoral training in Neurobiology from Arizona State University. Her research focuses on how the cytoskeletal scaffold is central to cellular signaling control within various cell types. Her group also studies how hormonal signaling influences neural plasticity and the role of select neural modulators in smooth muscle. Recently the lab began working with professional athletes in the sport of Fencing to determine if stress management during training could improve performance during competitions. The Baluch lab oversees the WM Keck Core Bioimaging lab in the School of Life Sciences and is very involved in educational outreach, professional/career training and developing methods and tools to improve the accessibility of STEM education to the visually impaired and blind.
