The Tawfik Lab, in collaboration with the labs of Dr. David Clark and Dr. Thomas Rando, publishes a study on how a commonly used anti-hypertensive may reproduce the effects of exercise on muscle regeneration in The Journal of Physiology.
Claire presented her summer research on marmoset spinal cord glia at the Symposium of Undergraduate Research and Public Service (SURPS). For her project, Claire used immunohistochemistry (IHC) to compare glial distribution and activation between mouse and marmoset spinal cord tissue following peripheral injury.
Lauren joined the lab as a postdoc after completing her PhD in Neuroscience at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. She is excited to investigate the glial contribution to acute and chronic pain conditions. She is looking forward to working with the wonderful people in the Tawfik lab!
The Tawfik Lab is pleased to announce that Janelle Doyle will be joining the lab as a Neurosciences PhD student! Janelle completed her Bachelors of Science degree in Biology at California State University, San Bernardino and then entered the Neurosciences Graduate Program at Stanford. She is excited to conduct research that has the potential to help those suffering from chronic pain, especially since she gets to work with her favorite cell type — glia! She is passionate about science communication and diversity in science, and is very happy to have found her lab home.
