Melanie is very excited to begin her Deanship and is eagerly looking forward to all the opportunities that this new position and its many responsibilities offer. The other members of the Woodin Lab are right behind her all the way and we can’t wait to see how she steers the Faculty of Arts & Science into the next decade!
Big congratulations to Melissa on being awarded an Ontario Graduate Scholarship! A well-deserved, merit-based honour and a wonderful recognition of her hard work!
Woodin Lab is excited to be heading to the CAN meeting in Toronto and if you’d like to get caught up on some of our most recent work don’t miss Dr. Woodin’s lecture “Regulation of KCC2 as a target for treatment of Autism” on Friday, May 24 at 13:30 as part of Parallel Symposium 6! Also, please visit our posters during Poster session 2 on Friday, May 24 at 15:30: Lynn Liang is presenting poster 2-B-27 Investigating interneuron subtype-specific inhibitory spike-timing dependent plasticity in the primary motor cortex and Melissa Seranilla is presenting poster 2-C-67 Striatal chloride homeostasis and inhibitory synaptic transmission is altered in huntington’s disease. We’ll see you there!
The Woodin Lab is pleased to welcome a new member! Miranda de Saint-Rome has joined the lab as a PhD student, please see the Lab Members tab for her background and stay tuned for the exciting work that will come out of her thesis!
Congratulations to Lynn Liang on successfully defending her PhD Proposal “Investigating interneuron subtype-specific inhibitory spike-timing dependent plasticity in the primary motor cortex”!
Today we celebrate women across the world for all that they do professionally and personally. In the Woodin Lab we are obviously led by a strong, powerful, and outspoken female neuroscientist but we are also proud to be a lab that always has and continues to be comprised primarily of strong, intelligent women. We believe that one of the best ways to inspire girls and young women to enter into STEM education and careers is to provide a bright and successful example of what a laboratory led and staffed by women looks like; we strive to project that reality outwards whenever possible. Many thanks to all the women who have contributed to the Woodin Lab’s success over the years, to the women who continue to do so, and to those who will do so in the future!!!
Congratulations to Danielle Garand who successfully defended her PhD thesis entitled “Kainate-receptor mediated regulation of chloride homeostasis” on Feb 1, 2019! You can read about her work in our recent Journal of Physiology publication.
Woodin Lab is excited to head to San Diego for Neuroscience 2018; we’ll see you there!!
