Work by Sackler Alum Liz Hanson Highlighted by J Neurosci.
Work on the way tonic glutamate signaling in the neonatal cortex contributes to the maturation of cortical interneurons was a cornerstone of thesis research conducted by recent Sackler grad Liz Hanson. Liz trained in the Neuroscience PhD program under the guidance of Chris Dulla. Her work was highlighted in a recent issue of J Neuroscience when one of her images was selected for the cover and chosen as the featured cover article.
