Emily Baker just received a University of Georgia Travel Award to present her transformative findings at the International Stroke Conference in Houston, Texas in February. She will share her research demonstrating paradigm changing neuroprotective and regenerative effects of neural stem cell therapy on ischemic stroke.
Congratulations to Madelaine Wendzik, one of our superstar undergraduate researchers, for being awarded the highly competitive CURO Summer Fellowship to continue her research in our lab!! Great work Madelaine! We are going to have tons of fun!
Congratulations to Holly Kinder for receiving the university wide Outstanding Teaching Assistant award for her teaching in multiple undergraduate research courses. Holly has done amazing work over the last two years leading a team of undergraduates in developing novel behavioral tests for studying learning, memory and behavior in pigs. As part of this work, she has closely mentored more than 20 undergraduate students. She has helped them learn all about experimental design, data analysis, collection and interpretation. Holly has worked late into the night helping students improve their presentation skills with many of them presenting oral and poster presentations at the UGA CURO symposium, the CAES Undergraduate Research symposium and the Regenerative Bioscience Research symposium. Here mentoring activities can only be described as “Outstanding”.
