JIMO BORJIGIN, PhD
Professor of Physiology & Neurology

Jimo Borjigin is an associate professor of Physiology and Neurology at the University of Michigan Medical School. She is interested in understanding the molecular basis of human consciousness. In collaboration with Dr. Steven Barker’s laboratory, her laboratory reported in 2013 that DMT (dimethyltryptamine) is endogenously secreted from the rat brain. This research was expanded further by Mr. Jon Dean, a Master of Science student in Borjigin laboratory, who investigated mechanisms of DMT synthesis in mammals. Her laboratory (https://sites.google.com/a/umich.edu/borjiginlab/) is currently engaged in several areas of neuroscience research. In addition to understanding biological functions of endogenous DMT, her laboratory is actively exploring Neurobiology of the Dying Brain as well as Brain-Heart Connection in both humans as well as in animal models.
