Rafael is one step closer to his PhD after giving a great talk at Physiology RIP seminar!
Lorraine presented her work on mechanosensation of Elephant Nose Fish at the Choate Rosemary Hall school science fair. Congrats to Lorraine and her mentor Ke!
A wonderful outreach session to West Hartford High schoolers.
Thank you, Sarah, for your efforts in promoting science to high school kids!
Very proud of Sam Levchenko, a lab alumnus from the Hopkins school, who presented his poster at Hopkins Authentic Research Program in Science!
Here is Sam and Marco, Sam’s mentor.
Luke gave an amazing talk at his (last) INP RIP seminar!
Our paper on the structure and functional mechanism in Meissner corpuscle is out in Science Advances!

Rebecca’s nailed her final talk in the INP research-in-progress seminar series! Congrats!
Akitoshi Chikamoto is a new postdoc in Slav’s lab.
Shade Eleazer (INP) joins Elena’s lab as a PhD student.
Amit Rana joins Elena’s group. Welcome!
Maryann gave a terrific talk at the 2023 Kavli meeting!
essential pre-talk rituals (works every time)…and the talk begins!time for questions!
Sam Bae joins (for the second time!) Slav’s lab for a summer project, and Sam Levchenko joins Elena’s.

Lorraine Hillgen from Choate Rosemary Hall joins Slav’s group for a summer project.
Ben leaves the lab to become a student at U-Mass Boston. Thanks for you work, Ben and good luck!
Emily Gu leaves the lab after several months of work with Maddy on a squirrel project. It’s been great having you in the lab, Emily!
Haoran gave a great talk during her INP RIP seminar!
Ke has completed yet another thesis committee meeting, a PhD is in sight!
Our review on thermoregulation in hibernators is out in Trends in Neuroscience!

Haoran receives a travel fellowship to attend Hibernation Science Workshop in Alaska!
Haoran nailed her quals today! One step closer to a PhD!
Maryann reported on a new chapter in our lab’s hibernation research during her Physiology RIP talk!
Mai and Yury’s collaborative work with the Sobolevsky lab is out in Nature Communications!

Elena, Ke and Jiawen went to Rockefeller University for an iDISCO workshop! But a slice of NY pizza first (just to reaffirm that New Haven apizza is way better).
We are absolutely thrilled to host Art Beyder today and learn about his work on the sense of touch in the gut!
A new pre-print from our lab by Yury and Luke reports the structure of Meissner corpuscle and the amazing bi-cellular mechanism by which corpuscles detect touch.
