Dr. Eryn Slankster (Postdoc in the Mathew Lab) was invited to present a platform talk during the Neural Circuits and Behavior session at the 2019 Annual Drosophila Conference in Dallas, TX. Suffice to say that she did a great job!
Dennis presented a poster at Achems 2019 in Bonita Springs, FL.
Congratulations to Dennis (Co-PI) and our collaborator, Dr. Annie Leonard (PI) for securing a USDA grant ($431, 899, 3 years) to study how neonicotinoid pesticides affect the sensory mechanisms underlying wild bee nutrition.
We are really excited for this collaboration with the Leonard lab!
Congratulations to Dennis (Co-PI) and our collaborator, Dr. Andrew Nuss (Asst. Prof., ANVS, UNR) (PI) for securing a Dept. of Defense grant ($500,000, 2 years) to study mosquito olfaction!!! Read more about it here:
Congratulations to Gunnar Newquist, Alex Novenschi, and Donovan Kohler on the recent publication of a research article in the journal eNeuro(eneuro.org). The title of the article is: Differential contributions of Olfactory Receptor Neurons in a Drosophila olfactory circuit.
Donovan and Alex are undergraduates (sophomores!) in the lab!
This is a fantastic accomplishment for our lab and we are looking forward to many more publications in the future!
Congratulations to Riley Kellermeyer and Lea Cohen for winning HURA awards for their respective research!
Riley is a Senior at UNR and is conducting her Honors’ thesis research in the Mathew Lab. Lea is a Senior at UNR and is writing her (research review) Honors’ thesis under the supervision of Dr. Mathew.
Mathew Lab welcomes three new members this upcoming fall! We proudly welcome David Clark (graduate student), Seth Odell (graduate student), and Sam Kafle (undergraduate student) to our lab with open arms and all look forward to working closely with them! Bio’s will be coming soon on all of our lab members, so stay tuned.
