Ph.D. candidate Linda Su-Feher represented the Nord Lab at the 2017 CSHL Single Cell Analyses meeting, held Nov 8-11, 2017, and presented a poster on single-cell RNA-sequencing in the basal ganglia.
BMCDB graduate student Linda Su-Feher participated in a one week International Student Workshop hosted by the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology (IGDB), from October 22nd – 28th. Graduate students from UC Davis, IGDB, and Japan’s Nara Institute of Science and Technology converged in Beijing, China, for a week of science, cultural exchanges, dancing, and food.
Congratulations to Michael Sramek, undergraduate researcher in our lab, for receiving the 2017-2018 Excellence in STEM Award! Read more about him and his award here.
Dlx1 and Dlx2 in cortical interneuron generation. Read ‘Dlx1 and Dlx2 Promote Interneuron GABA Synthesis, Synaptogenesis, and Dendritogenesis’ at Cerebral Cortex here. Congratulations to all the authors!
Alex Nord, Jess Haigh, Ayanna Wade, Linda Su-Feher, Rinaldo Catta-Preta, and Justin Lim attend the annual Molecular Psychiatry Meeting in San Francisco, CA. Posters were presented, followed by much consumption of food.
Jason Lambert joins us today as a postdoctoral scholar. He previously worked in Karen Zito’s lab at UC Davis. Jason will be investigating how genetic changes impact neurodevelopmental processes during primate and human evolution and in neurodevelopmental disorders.
Diana Quintero presents her poster on assessing enhancer activity of CACNA1C-associated SNPs at the 6th Annual EEOP Poster Symposium. Diana, an undergraduate majoring in Biological Sciences, is part of the Biology Undergraduate Scholars Program at UC Davis.
Jess Haigh, from the University of Leeds in the UK, joins today as a postdoctoral scholar. She will be investigating enhancer mutations and how they contribute to brain development and neurodevelopmental disorders.
