Right before the meeting…And right after!
Sarah gave a terrific talk at INP RIP seminar!
Sarah’s support team. Find Evan.Great job, Sarah!
Lydia is presenting her new story at the International Society for Neuroethology Meeting in Brisbane, Australia.
The photo is a little fuzzy, you see, but only because Australia is so far away…
The Award will support Lydia’s travel to the International Congress of Neuroethology in Australia!
Lydia’s award makes it two this year for our students. Congratulations!
Slav and Evan went to 2018 GRC Ion Channels meeting at Mt. Holoyoke College. Great science! Great fun!
Evan wins a Travel Award to attend the 2018 Ion channels GRC conference.
Congratulations to Lydia, who won both the audience-favorite prize as well as the 2nd overall prize for the 3 minute thesis competition!
Scurrelz in da space!
UPD: a video of Lydia’s presentation is now available.
Evan is getting one step closer to his PhD. Before the committee meeting:and right after:
Evan gave a great RIP talk in Physiology! (You dont’ know yet who’s on the photo, there is a cryptic puzzle game below).
Cryptic puzzle: Find Evan!
(A hint: this is Evan):
You may have noticed a rare recursive illusion: Evan is eating a pizza while watching Evan giving a seminar. Only in Slav and Elena’s labs!
Willem Laursen has got his PhD in Elena’ lab in just 4 years and now leaves to start a postdoc in Brandeis University.
Good luck, Dr. Laursen!
This time it’s a R.I.P. seminar of the INP program.
Sasha is guarding the pizza.
It’s time for another committee meeting for Lydia. Before the meeting:…and after:Great progress, Lydia! Epistemology of PhD-ing continues…
Willem Laursen defends his thesis after just 3.5 years in Elena’s lab.
Defense, Part I
Defense, Part II
Defense committee: Fred Sigworth, Michael Caplan, John CarlsonCongratulations, Dr. Laursen!
Slav and Willem went to the Gordon Research Seminar and Conference on ion channels at Mt. Holyoke college.
Serious people came to present some serious science. Willem’s talk was voted best at the Seminar and he had to present it again during the last day of the Conference.
A very New England treat.Many thanks to Emily Liman and Chris Ahern for organizing the meeting!
Finding Evan has never been easier. Before the meeting:…and after:
Evan gave a great RIP seminar in Physiology department.
Unfortunately, no photo of this event exists. For those eagerly awaiting the next episode of the cryptic puzzle game “find Evan”, this time the quest will be spiritual.
(Find) Evan, Slav and Lydia at Biophys 2016 in LA!

A panel of PIs welcoming new recruits.
Thanks to the clarity of presentation (part of which you can see on the slide), Willem has gotten his committee’s approval to start preparing for defense.
Lydia gave a seminar at the INP Student Research Talk. Great job, Lydia!
Willem Laursen has become a Fellow of the Kavli Foundation!
Today it was Lydia’s turn to give a Research-in-Progress seminar in the Neuroscience program.
Undeterred by a pizza delivery right in the middle of her talk, Lydia stayed the course gave one of the best INP R.I.P.s! Great job!
The cryptic puzzle Evan drew on the board was instrumental in conveying the essence of his research to the audience. Superbly done, Evan!
Our epistemology endeavor continues (see part I and part II).
This time it’s Lydia Hoffstaetter. Here she is before:
and right after successfully defending her PhD thesis prospectus:
There is a trend. Congratulations, Lydia!
…before and after qualification exams.
A case study: Evan the Tatum Fellow Anderson.
Before the qualification exam:
…and right after passing successfully:
The transformation is striking. We’ve already witnessed such transformation in the case of Willem Laursen.
