Ethan has received one of the inaugural Ben Barres Early Career Acceleration Awards as part of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative’s Neurodegeneration Challenge Network. Details can be found below:
We are pleased to welcome Everett Allchin as a graduate student and (belatedly) Riley Knight as an undergraduate research assistant!
Ethan chaired a session while Jonah gave an excellent talk. A large amount of meat and potatoes was also consumed!
The ladies presented their posters, while Ethan chaired two sessions. We also hung out with honorary Lippmann Lab member Brian O’Grady, who gave an awesome talk!
Our work with John Wikswo’s group continues to be fruitful! A supplement was awarded on John’s parent UG3 focused on mechanisms of opioid transport and metabolism within our BBB model. John was also awarded a U01 grant on studying melanoma metastasis, which also involves our BBB model. We’re looking forward to these ongoing collaborations!
