Eleni has been approved for promotion to Associate Research Scientist in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, U-M College of Engineering, effective September 1, 2022.
Cameron Smith, who is working on C. elegans egg-laying behavior in microgravity conditions, is awarded the Underwood-Alger Scholarship, 2022: This scholarship program is based on merit and intended to provide support for students majoring in the biological sciences. Congratulations, Cameron!
Adriana San Miguel Delgadillo, Assistant Professor at North Carolina State University, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, is giving the Mechanical Engineering Seminar Series talk, tomorrow, December 7, at 4pm.
Eleni is her host.
Watch Adriana’s talk here.
Our work, with Bennet Sakelaris* as the leading author and in collaboration with Victoria Booth, Professor of Mathematics, was just accepted for publication at the European Journal of Neuroscience!
Congratulations, Bennet! And thanks, everyone, for the great work!

On Sunday September 26, our SoniCelegans performance took place! Read the announcement here, and stay tuned for more details, backstage photos, footage, and recordings.
Student performers Faulkner Bodbyl-Mast (synthesizer), Indigo Knecht (tuba), Jacob Hume (cello), and Samuel Uribe-Botero (saxophone) did a wonderful job! Michael Gurevich provided brilliant guidance. We and our audience had Continue Reading »
Our method paper “A maze platform for the assessment of Caenorhabditis elegans behavior and learning”, by Gourgou E., and Hsu A-L., is now published in STAR Protocols! You can read it here.
The protocol describes a highly reproducible, low-cost maze platform, made of the standard, agar-based, nematode culturing material (NGM). It can be Continue Reading »
Our abstract, “Chemotaxis in a neuromechanical model of C. elegans“, by M. Ivanitskiy, V. Booth, and E. Gourgou, has been accepted for presentation at Neuroscience 2021 (Virtual: November 8-11, In-Person: November 13-16, Chicago, IL).
We are looking forward to the event!
