In collaboration with Alan Rupp (and others!) from Samer Hattar’s lab.
Thankful to the BRF for this support to develop new genetic tools to control specific neuronal populations!
Can’t wait to see your career progress! Good luck at UIC, and thanks for all your awesome work in the lab!
(Pictured with his mentor, Jasmine)
Can’t wait to see what you all accomplish over the summer!
Welcome to the Schmidt Lab Marcos!
Jasmine’s beautiful characterization of ipRGC cellular properties throughout postnatal development is now live on bioRxiv! Link: https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/619387v1
Congrats Takuma and thanks to NEI for the support!
Thank you to the Lighthouse Guild for this honor!
A collaboration with the Hattar Lab, this paper combines Michelle Ren’s beautiful MS thesis work from the Schmidt/Turek labs with Alan Rupp’s beautiful PhD work from the Hattar lab. We find that distinct circuits are responsible for light’s acute versus circadian effects on sleep and body temperature. Link: https://www.biorxiv.org/content/early/2018/12/13/496323
With an assist from Jasmine, Amanda, and Katelyn!
