After a long hiatus, our Physiology renewed in-person seminars. It was our pleasure to host Dr. Laura Bianchi!
Thank you for the wonderful seminar!
Ben Bae is a Visiting Undergraduate Trainee in both labs.
After a long hiatus, we’re back to in-person Student Research Talks, and Sarah kicked it off with a great story on hibernation! In vivo!
Srsly, IN VIVO!!!
Maddy successfully passes yet another committee meeting! It’s the first one in-person! Good-ol times are back!
A nice report covering Rafael’s recent paper is published in J Exp Biol:
