Lab Changes for June

Our Lab Manager, Lisa Bemis, has taken a position as a Lab Manager at the University of Pittsburgh in the Biodynamics Lab and will be leaving the LCBD after almost eight years. We will miss her!

Christina Hlutkowsky, our Research Specialist, will be leaving to attend graduate school at Penn State University in June. She has spent three years at the LCBD, and we will miss her smiling face!

Our recent undergrad research assistant, Alex Burlew, now a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, will be joining the LCBD as Research Specialist in June. We are excited to welcome him to the team!

Congratulations Hilton!


Our undergraduate research assistant, Hilton Braithwaite, was awarded the summer fellowship for The Center for Neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh (CNUP) and will be here this summer for a 10-week program in the lab. We are very excited to have him here full-time to help run subjects and work on his independent study. Congrats on this achievement!

Congratulations Christina!
