After a two year hiatus, an in-person annual retreat is back to Physiology Department!
Retreat logo designed by Ke:Ke is giving a talk on the sense of touch in Elephant Nose Fish:Maddy’s talking about molecular mechanisms of thirst suppression during hibernation:Winners of the poster competition (L to R): Luke, Qian (Chang lab), Rafael, Ke and Elena (didn’t win anything):A grand prize (final Quiz) winner – Maryann!
Joanna Haoran Cao, a PhD student from the Neuroscience track, joins Elena’s lab. Welcome!
