Grad student wins best poster award
Joe Brague, a Ph.D. candidate in the lab of Professor Jennifer Swann, was awarded the “Best Graduate Student Poster Award” at the Society for Behavioral Neuroscience meeting held in Montreal, Canada last summer.
Joe’s research revolves around how hormones are influencing the brain and ultimately behavior. There is much evidence in support of hormones influencing behavior, but the underlying brain mechanisms behind this regulation are largely unknown. His research on neurotrophins has shed light on a possible molecular link between hormones and the behaviors they regulate.
