A great dispatch by
Sandy Martin on our recent study:
Sandra L. Martin “
Water Balance: Abstaining from Obtaining while Retaining” 29(19), PR925-7. Current Biology
An excellent talk by Jenny on her
recent paper at Physiology RIP seminar!
Ed Young, a prominent science journalist and author, visited the labs today. It was great chatting with you, Ed – thanks for your interest! We look forward to reading your new books and articles!
study on the mechanism of survival without water is on the cover of today’s Current Biology!
Delegates from Elena’s team went to the annual meeting of the Smith Family Foundation. Thank you for supporting basic research!
Sarah, Jenny, Maddy, Elena.
Our new paper of how hibernating squirrels manage to not drink for months is out in Current Biology!

Bittersweet news – Wang and (find) Evan are moving on, leaving behind them a huge legacy in the lab! Good luck!
Sarah and Jenny at the Neuroday posters!
A new study from our lab on how cold affects mechanoreceptor function is out in PNAS!

Art can be inspiring, motivational and more. Maddy and Sarah draw their everyday inspiration and motivation in part from Squirrel Triptych – an original art by Oleg Grachov, now displayed in Elena’s lab.
Evan has successfully defended his PhD thesis!
Congratulations, Dr. Anderson!
Evan had a pre-defense committee meeting today. Here is Evan before the seminar…
…and right after: No difference! This is progress. This is a PASS!
Elena receives a
Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). Congratulations! UPD 7/25/19. Awards ceremony, Constitution Hall, D.C.:
Nicole Tang starts a summer project in Elena’s lab. Welcome!
Maddy gave an excellent seminar at INP Research-In-Progress. Great job!
Maya Lewis-Hayre joins Slav’s lab for a summer project. Welcome!
Viktor wins a talk prize at the
Yale Postdoctoral Symposium. Congratulations!
Slav and Elena finished editing a Special Issue of Neuroscience Letters on thermoregulation. The issue features a
great collection of reviews from experts in the field.

Tom McCabe is now a Postgraduate trainee in Slav’s lab.
Jenny has received a New Investigator Award from the
Society for Behavioral Neuroendocrinology!
Maddy Junkins (Yale INP) joins Elena’s lab!
A great talk by Wang on gating of Piezo channels!
To get to the lab, Sarah and Maddy don’t just walk, ride or cycle. They canoe!
A wonderful talk by Sarah at the INP RIP seminar!
Congratulations to Wang on receiving a postdoctoral fellowship from the Kavli Institute for Neuroscience!
Another great outreach session with New Haven kids at our Sensory Physiology Club!
