Reagan's poster on PXF-1 regulating synapse development won third place in the poster awards at the annual Trainee Poster Session!
Second year PhD student, Hank Richburg, was selected for a talk at the KNI Symposium! He presented his research on membrane-associated guanylate kinases and their roles in regulating neuronal activity.
Sam discussed the use of C. elegans to understand how neurons and glia communicate to regulate the function of neuronal circuits. The seminar provided an opportunity to discuss new approaches…
Sam shared his postdoctoral research on C. elegans as a way to gain insights into the mechanisms that underlie epilepsy. The symposium assembled researchers that spanned fundamental, pre-clinical, and translational…
