Emily Wolfgram attended the annual SACNAS conference ( Society for Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science) in San Antonio, TX where she won an award for undergraduate poster presentation in the field of Cell/Molecular Biology. Congratulations Emily.
- Nick Boyer and Stephanie publish a review: Netrin-1, the one who guides axons, in Frontiers in Cellular Neuroscience.
Fabio wil be spending seven weeks in Woods Hole, MA at the historic Physiology Course at the Marine Biological Laboratories.
Check out the consequences of genetic deletion of Trim67.
Deletion of murine Trim67 results in malformations of a subset of subcortical brain regions and of cortical and subcortical myelinated fiber tracts, as well as deficits in spatial memory, motor function, sociability and sensorimotor gating. Interactions between TRIM67 and both the netrin receptor DCC and TRIM9, and abnormalities in netrin-sensitive brain regions are noted. We conclude that TRIM67 is critical for appropriate brain development and behavior.
Congratulations Anthony for being selected to attend the Analytical and Quantitative Light Microscopy Course at the Marine Biological Laboratories.
Congrats to Emily on being selected to attend a Summer Research Training Program at UCSF. We will miss you this summer, but excited for this opportunity.
We are thrilled that Laura McCormick is joining the Gupton Lab and the Cell Biology and Physiology Curriculum! Welcome Laura!
