Productive summer and ready for the fall

The fall semester is around the corner. Everybody is ready for a productive semester!

We just concluded an exciting summer. This summer, we got two grants to support our research on female sexual reward and social stress respectively (thanks to the funding agencies for their opportunity and support!). And for the first time, we participated in the filming of a documentary: an episode (Sex, bugs, and evolution) of the Nature of Things (see the picture with the crew).

Two excellent undergraduate researchers, Madison and Paul, completed full-time research for 10 weeks, supported by the UDRF and the McNair Scholar program respectively. Both will continue their research in the fall :)!

We welcome two Ph.D. students, Ryan and Juntian, to the lab!

We had a great lunch to celebrate all these achievements, but everyone was attracted by the food and forgot to take a new group photo…
