UNE’s INBRE Research Fellows selected to present their work at the 2021 Virtual North East Regional IDeA Conference (v-NERIC)

UNE is proud to host two INBRE Research Fellows this summer.  Alsu Shagieva is a student at College of the Atlantic and is working in Dr. Kerry Tucker’s lab (COM).  Will Sampson is a recent graduate of U Maine Farmington and is working in Dr. Karen Houseknecht’s lab (COM).  Both students were selected to give a “lightening talk” at the v-NERIC meeting.    Alsu’s presentation is entitled:  Loss of primary cilia in pyramidal cells of the hippocampus results in loss of functional excitatory synapses.  The title of Will’s talk is: Characterizing atypical antipsychotic drug exposure across a dose range and impacts on inflammatory response in zebrafish embryos. 

Congratulations Will and Alsu!
