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!
