We kicked off the IPAN 2018 Bootcamp. Afterwards, the twelve students will be heading off to do summer research in Germany (University of Freiberg and University of Hamburg), and South Korea (KIST in Seoul).
Our lab has received an R01 grant award from the National Institute of Mental Health! In a multi-PI collaborative project with the laboratory of Dr. Ted Abel at the University of Iowa, we received funding to investigate the “Molecular, Cellular And Circuit Effects Of Sleep Deprivation On Hippocampal Function”. Over the coming years, we will perform and analyze large-scale neuronal recordings from hippocampal neurons in sleep-deprived and rested animals performing spatial memory tasks. Based on this funding, we will be recruiting both a graduate student and a postdoctoral researcher. Please get in touch if you would like to apply.
