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.
Elena’ lab has moved to a new home in Sterling Hall of Medicine.
Brand new benches!Moving in (find Evan).
Welcome to the new home of the Gracheva Lab!
Another technological terror is in the making.
Our Patch Rig 2 has been upgraded to have Ca-imaging capability.
The Patch Rig II battlestation undergoes rigorous tests is real action. Most of the armament is now in place and fully operational.
Thank you, rig commander Eve!
Electrode fabrication is no process for the faint-hearted. It’s an arduous task that requires stamina, perseverance, tenacity and binocular vision. Therefore, to keep up the high morale of our biophysicists, we’ve pinned up a redesigned poster classics.
This and a custom-designed pipette holder for our CPM-2 microforge.
Thank you John Buckley and Andrew Wilkins for design and manufacturing, and Eve for the idea!
Another technological terror is under way…
The beginning of Patch Rig II: Upright patch-clamp, slice-capable, dual mechano-controlled, temeprature-controlled + more
Eve has finished the construction of a technological terror: a temperature-controlled double-mechano-equipped Ca-imaging/patch clamp rig.
Our fully temeprature controlled two-electrode voltage clamp rig is ready for action.
