Assistant Professor

Professor Jenkins focuses on Advanced Psychopharmacology. He teaches psychopharmacology as a result of his passion for combining neuroscience, pharmacology, and psychology to help students develop a well-rounded understanding of utilizing psychotropics and understanding the science of how these drugs can be beneficial for the patients they serve to better improve their overall quality of life.

Understanding neurobiology and psychopharmacology is a complex, intriguing, and sometimes confusing topic. This can be particularly true in new and developing treatments such as psychedelics. He has an interest and fascination with learning and mastering new and developing concepts in neuroscience and psychopharmacology, especially psychedelics and pharmacogenomics, and the promise they hold to improve the quality of life for our patients.

A more accurate description of a mental illness is when one spends the majority of their time in the past or the future and rarely living the present.
