University of Wisconsin-Madison | via Zoom | May 27-28, 2021
The CMB Physiology subgroup is proud to announce the inaugural Isthmus Physiology Symposium! This student-organized virtual gathering will be an opportunity for students, postdoctoral trainees, and faculty to experience and discuss cutting-edge research in physiologic processes, from ion channels to cells to whole organisms.
The Symposium will include local and visiting faculty speakers and will occur over Thursday, May 27, and the morning of Friday, May 28. Please register here if you plan on attending and presenting.
See below for a speaker list and symposium schedule. We look forward to seeing you in May!
Dr. Estelle Gauda
Gauda has clinical expertise in Perinatal-Neonatal care of the high risk newborn and a solid research portfolio investigating 1) mechanisms that control breathing with a focus maturation of the carotid body and its effects on breathing during development in health and disease in premature infants, and 2) alternative treatment paradigms for neonatal abstinence syndrome.
Dr. Nelson Spruston
As Senior Director of Scientific Programs, Spruston has oversight of the Science and Training team at Janelia. Spruston’s lab explores the role of the hippocampus in learning and memory, with an emphasis on the properties of a diverse collection of cell types and how they come together to form a circuit that mediates the learning and recall of episodic memories.
