Whitney Griggs graduated from Whitman College (Walla Walla, WA) in 2013 with a double major in Applied Mathematics and Biochemistry, Biophysics, and Molecular Biology (BBMB). His BBMB honors thesis was based upon human psychophysics research investigating how the eye and head are coordinated during large amplitude gaze movements while his math thesis explored how non-parametric statistics can be applied in systems neuroscience. After college, Whitney worked at the National Eye Institute for 3 years doing rhesus macaque electrophysiology, fast-scan cyclic voltammetry, and fMRI research under the mentorship of Dr. Okihide Hikosaka. Whitney was accepted into the UCLA-Caltech Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) in 2017 and plans to graduate with his dual MD-PhD in 2025. When not in classes or doing research, Whitney enjoys long-distance trail running and can likely be found in the San Gabriel or Santa Monica mountains on a running adventure.
