We have two new faces joining us in the Mesce lab this fall!
Emiliya (Emma) Bayko is a new undergraduate researcher in the lab, who will be working with us on our ongoing project to uncover the mechanisms of recovery following nerve cord injury in the leech. Emma comes to us from Metropolitan State University, where she has previously worked with Asst. Prof. Cindy Harley (former postdoctoral fellow in the lab)! We look forward to working with Emma this semester, as well as our continued collaboration with Cindy on this project!
Also joining us this semester is Radhika (Rads) Edpuganti. Rads is current undergraduate student in the Neuroscience program here at the U of M, and will be working with us over the next year on a variety of projects, including the leech revovery project, our arachnid neurobiology project, and the ultrasonic neuromodulation project. We are very excited to have Rads onboard!
Welcome, welcome, Emma and Rads!
