Meiling joins the lab

We are thrilled to welcome Meiling to the Mattis lab as our second postdoc! Meiling completed her PhD in the Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology, along with a dual master’s degree in the Department of Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics, both at the University of Michigan. Working in Sam Kwon’s lab, she uncovered neuronal mechanisms of impaired perceptual learning associated with neurodevelopmental disorders using a mouse model of Synaptic Ras-GTPase-activating protein (SynGAP), behavioral testing, and in vivo two-photon calcium imaging.
