Annual Society for Neuroscience meetings in Chicago, IL. October 2015.
Katie Luckett (Biochemistry '16) received a travel award from the Faculty for Undergraduate Education (FUN) to attend the Society for Neuroscience meetings. This international conference is attended by ~30,000 scientists from around the world. Katie presented the research she has been working in my lab over the past two years, which focuses on the role of neuropeptides in neuronal regulation of the heart. Katie also received support the H&S student travel fund and the Biology Department for her attendance at this conference.
I was one of 25 neuroscientists from across the country invited to a workshop focusing on increasing PUI involvement in NSF-funded BRAIN initiative research. Read more about it here.
