Exazevia Logan, Ph.D.
Exazevia Logan received a Bachelor’s degree in biology from Winston Salem State University and a Ph.D. in neuroscience from Wake Forest University School of Medicine. Prior to joining WSSU he completed a post-doctoral fellowship in the department of Hypertension at Wake Forest University School of Medicine. He is currently an assistant professor in the department of Life Sciences at Winston Salem State University. His area of interest is the neural control of blood pressure with a concentration in molecular mechanism responsible for the development and maintenance of hypertension. His graduate research was funded by a pre doctoral National Research Individual Service Award (NRSA) from the national blood and lung institute and a neuroscience training grant from Wake Forest University School of Medicine. His ongoing studies are designed to provide initial information about the relationship between the apparent enhancement of the sympathetic nervous system in various forms of hypertension and the role of PI3 and MAP kinase signaling pathways in the maintenance of hypertension.
