  • Emily Waterhouse: Emily is a MD/PhD program student and did rotation at Matsuoka lab in summer 2005. Following is a comment from Emily.

    I worked in the Matsuoka lab investigating Alzheimer’s disease during the summer of 2005 as a PhD rotation. My training had been in mathematical neural modeling, so many of the methods employed by the lab were new to me. I found the lab atmosphere stimulating and easy to learn in. Specifically I was able to learn the following techniques; FRET, ELISA, Western Blot, cell culture methods, cryostat operation, histological slide preparation, intraperitoneal mouse injection, and mouse intranasal drug administration. I had a fun and educational summer and would highly recommend working in this lab.
     

  • Sakura Minami:  Sakura is a IPN PhD program student and did rotation at Matsuoka lab in summer 2005. Following is a comment from Sakura.

    I greatly enjoyed my summer rotation in Dr. Matsuoka’s lab. I had always been interested in the mechanisms of neurodegeneration, specifically in Alzheimer’s Disease, but had had no previous experience in the field. My time at the lab exposed me to a variety of new methods and techniques, as well as a vast array of new literature in the field. I was able to compile all that I learned with the experiments I was able to run, and presented my findings at the Summer 2005 IPN Rotation Talks. The lab proved to be a very supportive and fun environment for me to learn and work in. I appreciate all that I learned, and believe that working in this lab would be a very good learning experience for anyone interested.
