November 14, 2018: Congrats to Man Si and Krystle Trosclair for our lab's latest publication in the American Journal of Physiology- Cell Physiology entitled "Genetic ablation or pharmacological inhibition of Kv1.1 potassium channel subunits impairs atrial repolarization in mice"
October 26, 2018: At the 5th annual Research and Industry Day conference, Krystle Trosclair was awarded 1st place Predoctoral Student Poster for her work on the role of neuron-specific Kv1.1 channel deficiency in epilepsy and sudden death, while Hemangini Dhaibar received an Honorable Mention for her poster on respiratory abnormalities in a mouse model of sudden death in epilepsy. We also welcomed Dr. Katharine Smith (University of Colorado-Denver), an expert in nanoscale synaptic imaging, as a guest speaker at the meeting.
September 19, 2018: Lab dinner with our guest seminar speaker Dr. Cathy Proenza (University of Colorado-Denver), an expert in the molecular physiology of cardiac pacemaking.
July 1, 2018: Dr.
Glasscock was officially awarded tenure and promoted to the rank of Associate Professor.
June 14-16, 2018: Dr. Glasscock gave a lecture entitled "SUDEP in the Kv1.1 mouse model: unanswered questions" at the Imaging & Genetics Roundtable session at the Partners Against Mortality in Epilepsy (PAME) conference in Alexandria, VA. Hemangini Dhaibar also presented her research on cardiorespiratory dysfunction in Kv1.1 knockout mice during the poster session.
May 24, 2018: Dr. Glasscock gave a lecture at the annual Ion Channel Symposium at the Danish Royal Academy of Sciences and Letters in Copenhagen, Denmark. The title of his talk was "Complex genetic interactions in mouse models of sudden death in epilepsy."
May 16, 2018: Lab dinner with our guest seminar speaker Dr. Nino Ramirez, the Director of the Center for Integrative Brain Research at Seattle Children’s Hospital and an expert in cardiorespiratory coupling physiology.
May 11, 2018: Hemangini Dhaibar received a $1,000 travel award to attend the Partners Against Mortality in Epilepsy (PAME) conference in Alexandria, VA in June.
March 2, 2018: Krystle Trosclair was awarded second place for her oral presentation on her research at the LSU-Shreveport Scholars Symposium.
