The research group is mourning the tragic loss of Rojina Shrestha. We will miss her enthusiasm for science and life.

April 2022

Two groups of undergraduates presented their work at the CURC symposium. The team that is training rats to press a specific lever when they perceive wintergreen and the three first-year undergraduate researchers who have been growing designed DNA crystals. The latter group will be recognized with an award! Congrats to Nabila, Sage, and Sebastian.
