New Year’s celebration

Since many of our lab members traveled over the holidays we finally got to have our Holiday/New Year’s outing. We had a blast as always with lots of laughter and excellent food. Now we are looking forward to yet an exiting year! This year we will relocate to NRB, the new Neuroscience Research Building.

Welcoming our 2 newest lab members


We are welcoming two new members to our lab. Sophie Ma joins us as a undergraduate researcher, and Samarth Aggarwal is our new research technician who recently relocated from San Diego, CA.

Chen Lab is growing

We are so excited to welcome two new lab members to our lab! Aditi Maduskar graduated with a PhD in Neuroscience from IISER, Pune. For her doctoral thesis she used zebrafish as a model system to investigate the signal transduction mechanisms that underlie neuropeptidergic regulatoin of feeding behaviour and associated modalities. In Chen lab, she […]

Poster presentation

Chen Lab’s senior lab member Pingchuan Ma presented his research recently at the Neuroscience Retreat.

Welcome Lizzie!

MSTP student Lizzie Tilden joins the lab. Her Ph.D thesis work will focus on investigating the potential role of PKA in sleep. Using simultaneous Electroencephalogram (EEG) and Fluorescent Lifetime Photometry (FLiP) in freely behaving mice, she can precisely track PKA activation and characterize or manipulate activity patterns throughout the sleep and wake cycle. We are […]
