After over 2 months of lab shutdown due to the corona virus, the Venton lab is now back at research. We are working shifts this summer to promote social distancing, but are glad to be back doing our neurochemistry research!
Congrats to Mimi for the CE-FSCV for the analysis of neurotransmitters content in ant brain got accepted in Anal Bioanal Chem. This is part of special issue on Females Role Models in Analytical Chemistry.
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.
