Congatulations to Luis A. Haddock III Soto and Adrian Alejandro Garcia to start graduate school in the coming semester at the University of Wisconsin - Madison and the University of California - Berkeley, respectively. We will miss both of you!
Congratulations to our undergraduate student Adrian Alejandro Garcia (middle), who received an award at ABRCMS (Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students) for his work done in Troy Littleton's lab at MIT during summer 2017!!
Great news: The Whitehall Foundation awarded us our first research grant!
After category 4 hurricane Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico September 20th 2017, our lab temporarily relocated to Janelia Research Campus (Ashburn, VA) and the Molecular Sciences Building (San Juan, PR) until access to power and water are restored.
Getting ready for category 5 hurricane Irma to hit the north coast of Puerto Rico (September 6th).
The book "Decoding Neural Circuit Structure and Function" is now available. http://www.springer.com/in/book/9783319573625
We wrote the chapter Targeted Manipulation of Neuronal Activity in Behaving Adult Flies.
Fun times with our visitors: Kristin Branson (Janelia Group Leader), Katrin Vogt (Postdoc in Aravinthan Samuel's Lab, Harvard) and Armin Bahl (Postdoc in Florian Engert's Lab, Harvard).
View from our benches over the Spanish fort El Morro. It was designed to guard the entrance of the San Juan Bay, and defend the Spanish city of San Juan from seaborne enemies in the 16th-19th century.
Renovations to the lab were completed in January. The lab has three extra rooms for fly sorting, behavior/imaging, and desk space for students and postdocs.
