Dr. Venton visited St. Jude's Research Hospital in Memphis, and presented a seminar to the Brain Club. Her host, Dr. Stanislav Zakharenki is now using adenosine FSCV techniques to study how adenosine mediates plasticity. Cool to see someone adopting our techniques!
Dr. Venton travelled to Atlanta to present a talk on our new carbon electrodes at the Electrochemical Society meeting. Our symposium also featured Venton lab alum Alex Zestos, now an assistant Professor at American University.
Dr. Venton visited University of Cincinnati and gave a talk in the Oesper award symposium honoring Mark Wightman. Here's a picture of her with Mark Wightman and Bob Kennedy (Michigan), her postdoc advisor. Ashley Ross, Venton lab alum, is a Assistant Professor at Cinicinnati and played host for the event (and gave a talk as well).
The Venton lab teamed up with the Grotewiel group at VCU to study serotonin in flies with different yeast diets. Visiting scholar Huaifang Fang did the tissue content analysis in our lab and the collborators looked at ethanol sedation behavior.
