Congratulations, Hend!

The West Lab is proud to announce that Hend Rasheed has been awarded the Fall 2017 CURO Research Assistantship!

Hend Rasheed is a second year undergraduate majoring in Genetics and minoring in Spanish and Pharmaceutical Sciences. She is very excited to be a part of the West Lab, as she finds regenerative medicine extremely interesting. She has helped the graduate students with the Acute iNSC Transplantation project and working with the other undergraduates to design their own project to characterize anxious behavior in pigs. She hopes to eventually attend medical school. Outside of the West Lab, she is on the exec board for Red Cross and for her service sorority, Gamma Sigma Sigma. She also works in another lab in the Ecology department here at UGA, for which she has perviosuly presented at the CURO symposium.

Way to go, Zack!

  • The West Lab is proud to announce that Zack Jones has been awarded the Fall 2017 CURO Research Assistantship!

As an undergraduate researcher, Zack Jones enjoys his work with the TBI Gait and Behavioral project. He especially likes socializing the animals, assisting with gait analysis, and generally gaining experience in the lab. When not focusing on research, he spends his time playing for the ultimate Frisbee club team, drumming, or hiking.

Congrats, Neil!

The West Lab is proud to announce that Neil Doshi has been awarded the Fall 2017 CURO Research Assistantship!

Neil is a third year undergraduate student pursuing degrees in Biology and Psychology. He has been involved in projects such as the Scaled Traumatic Brain Injury project, the Stroke project, the Nanoparticle Biodistribution Study, and many more. Neil has done additional solo gait analysis for the traumatic brain injury projects and has presented his findings via a poster titled “A Comprehensive Assessment of Cognitive and Motor Functional Outcomes after Traumatic Brain Injury in a Porcine Model” at the 2017 CURO Symposium. Some of his hobbies include photography, playing sports and video games. After graduating from UGA in 2019, Neil desires to attend medical school.

Thanks, Kim!

Thanks for all your hard work this summer, Kim!
