Bailey joined the Gerwick group in September of 2011 as a Ph.D. student. He graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2009, where he obtained a Bachelor of Science in Biopsychology. Following graduation, Bailey remained at UCSB for two years to work as a technician in the lab of Dr. Karen Szumlinski where he worked on elucidating the neurochemical and brain pathways involved in addiction to drugs of abuse. Working jointly between Dr. Gerwick and Dr. Vivian Hook in the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Bailey hopes to work on assay development as well as isolation and structure elucidation chemistry in order to reconcile his neurochemical background and his drive to work with marine natural products.
