Lull’s current laboratory research focuses on the effects of environmental toxins on the brain. Through understanding of the molecular responses of the brain to these toxins, she seeks to explore the links between environmental exposures and the development of neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and autism. Lull has also recently done work as a forensic toxicology consultant/expert witness, focusing on the effects of marijuana on driving ability.

She has authored or co-authored 14 articles that have been published in journals including the Journal of the American Pharmacists Association and the Journal of Neurochemistry. She has presented at conferences including the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy Annual Meeting and the American Pharmacists Association Annual Meeting.

Beyond the laboratory, Lull has a strong interest in public health outreach and community service. She has spent time in Guinea, West Africa and with students in El Salvador where she assisted in pharmacy services and health outreach. Most recently, Lull has led teams of students on service trips to the Blackfeet reservation in Montana.
