The Moorman Lab welcomes our newest member – Dr. Christopher Perk who is starting as a postdoctoral fellow to study the role of the hypocretin/orexin system in motivation and addiction. Chris joins us from the University of Otago where he received his PhD in the Department of Anatomy.
In addition, we re-welcome Samantha Rios, who started as an undergraduate researcher in the lab and is now joining us as a SPUR/PREP student for 2017-2018. Sam will be working as part of the prefrontal/orbitofrontal alcohol team and has already made some substantial contributions to this project.
Finally, big welcome to our newest undergraduate members: Stephanie Fedorchak and Owen Jordan – working on the INIA Stress projects and Sophie Jackson – working on prefrontal cortex studies with Jessica.
It’s shaping up to be an awesome summer. More to come (and updated bios soon – promise!).
This is potentially pretty exiting – (very) preliminary new results from the Moorman Lab Miniscope team (Kathy Tran and Peter Chiknas). Watch this space…
