We are extremely pleased to have several new members in 2019. John Palucki joined the lab as a research technician and is helping with many of the tissue culture experiments. Kelsey Krus and Jayson Cruz are both neuroscience graduate students in WUSM’s Medical Scientist Training Program. We are also pleased to welcome Dr. Laura Devault, our newest postdoc. Laura comes to us from Dr. Yuh Nung Jan’s lab at UCSF and will be exploring interactions between the immune system and nervous system in Drosophila.
