Fall Rotation Students

The Datta lab is hosting two great rotation students this fall from the Program in Neuroscience. Dan Bear, is a recent Harvard grad and is working on single cell profiling methods. Rachel Donahue, a Bowdoin grad who hails from northern California (not far from the LBC!), is focusing on automated analysis of odor-driven behaviors and is developing new lines of reporter mice. Welcome to both!

Work from the lab was recently highlighted in an article in Harvard Medicine about the five senses.

Bob also won an Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship, which is intended to support promising young scientists from a wide range of scientific disciplines; the award is described in an article in the Harvard Gazette.
