Students and Alumni at SFN 2017

On Nov. 11-15, 2017, our undergraduate students attended the Socitey for Neuroscience annual conference in Washington DC.  In addition to presenting their research and attending scientific sessions, it was a good opportunity to reconnect with our former students who have gone on the graduate Neuroscience Programs.

Kristyn Lizbinski (Class of ’13) at West Virginia University shows her work on flight sensory motor to olfactory processing circuit in the tobacco hornworm moth Manduca sexta.

Danielle Salvadeo (Class of ’14), a M.D./Ph.D. Candidate at Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is working on exploring the integrity of bladder innervation and smooth muscle function after lower spinal cord injury.
Left: Ashley N Opalka (Class of '17) at is currently research asstant at Drexel University working on neural ensemble dynamics underlying learning and memory consolidation.  At the conference, she showed her Honors Thesis research on goldfish startle response recovery.  She is shown with Cara Anzulewicz, class of 2018.
Reshma Gore (third from left) , Class of ’15, is a graduate student at the University of Minnesota, studying the role of BDNF-TrkB signaling in spinal nociceptive circuitry.    She is shown here with current students Cara Anzulewicz and Kerry Buckhaults and alumna Ashley Opalka.
