It's been a busy month! Cailey Salagovic presented her work at the Rotman Conference on the Aging Brain, undergraduate thesis student Jania Hemnani presented at the IDSTEM meeting, and Jania and Facundo Lodol presented their thesis work at the Psychology poster session!
Congratulations to Austin Robertson and Zhaleh Alipour on their wonderful talks at Neuroscience Research Day. To top it off, Zhaleh also placed in the NeuroArt competition organized by Jessica Lammert!
A warm welcome to Emma Neto, who is joining the NiSSL group to pursue research in the area of multisensory integration through the Department of Psychology. We are also very fortunate to have Jessica Lammert, Cailey Salagovic, and Kate Raymond staying on for another round!
Congratulations to Jessica Lammert, Cailey Salagovic, and Kate Raymond who all successfully defended their Master's projects this summer. This was no simple feat given the significant challenges associated with the suspension of in-person research activities, but Jessica, Cailey, and Kate showed amazing levels of dedication and flexibility - truly wonderful models for our more junior trainees (and myself!)
Congratulations to Dan Miller and Alex Levine along with Gabriel Mattatall (Menon Lab) and Roy Haast (Khan Lab) on their successful BrainsCAN Postdoctoral Collaborative Grant. Looking forward to supporting this ambitions and exciting pilot!
Congratulations to Kate Raymond and Jessica Lammert, both of whom were awarded NSERC CGS-M awards for their exciting Master's research projects!
Happy Holidays from the NiSSLab!
