The Stokes Lab


Miranda Farrar

Academic. Inquisitive. Focused. 

I am thrilled to be a part of the lab led by Dr. Stokes, the person who sparked my love for anatomy and physiology. I am a junior in Kinesiology with a minor in Health Studies, and I’m planning to advance my education in the field of Occupational Therapy. I am so grateful to have this opportunity, and I can’t wait to see where it takes me!


Logan Zermeno

Student. Powerlifter. Nerd.


I am a kinesiology major who is naturally curious and always trying to expand my general knowledge. I am excited to work with Dr. Stokes to build strength equipment for rats that will hopefully make them super strong. I am planning to attend medical school in Texas after I graduate from Southwestern.


Mila Fisher

Student. Artist. Lover of Learning. 

I am passionate and curious about the human body and mind, and am excited to work with Dr. Stokes and see what we can discover through research! My hope is to attend graduate school after eventually completing my undergraduate degree of psychology with a kinesiology minor.


This could be YOU! Contact the lab to learn more about student research opportunities. 

Dr. Stokes

Academic. Researcher. Explorer. 

My path to get here was not linear, but I like to think that I learned a lot along the way. This convoluted path also proved to solidify what I knew all along: I love science, I love to teach science, and I love introducing students to research. 


The lab mascot! A poorly extracted dorsal root ganglion resulted in this colorful prehistoric masterpiece. Captured during my thesis research, Toprosaur safeguards the lab. 

(The name is a combination of the TOPRO3 antibody and dinosaur)

I am an undergraduate junior pursuing a degree in Kinesiology with a minor in health studies, in hopes of getting into physical therapy grad school. I love learning all the things about the human body and am super stoked to be working with Dr. Stokes this summer!
