Jaimee Moline was awarded the UROP Blue Ribbon for her “outstanding poster and presentation during the virtual symposium”. As mentioned by Kelly E. Maxwell, Ph.D., Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Education
College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, Jaimee’s “visual representation of data was organized and well-designed, and she excelled in demonstrating the context of Continue Reading »
New York Academy of Sciences Newsletter: Building Transformative Collaborations to Address Society’s Challenges-Finding a Common Research Language and a New Approach to Studying Aging; Eleni and winning team mates, share their experience on international collaborations, here.
Maria Schiavone, senior, Mechanical Engineering Dept, joined our team. Welcome, Maria! She is recording C. elegans locomotion to discover changes in motion features, related to aging and genetic background. She will be collecting data for the Interstellar Initiative grant development, and for our joint project with BIRDS lab (Shai Revzen and Brian Bittner).
Eleni participated in the 2nd Interstellar Workshop for 2019-2020, which was held on February 20-21 at New York city. This international event was jointly organized by the Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development (AMED) and New York Academy of Sciences. It was a wonderful experience! Eleni presented Team’s 8 research proposal, which she had Continue Reading »
Bennet was inspired by C. elegans locomotion, and built the “Nematode Game”!

The grant was awarded following the Interstellar Initiative, in which Eleni participated last September, in New York City. The Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development (AMED) sponsored the Interstellar Initiative Funding Award for further development of the proposal titled “Elucidation of aging-driven decline of cognitive and motor behaviors through an interdisciplinary approach”. Eleni is Continue Reading »
Abdul joined the team recently as a RISE student (Research, Innovation, Service and Entrepreneurship program for ME undergraduate students). He is building a 3D rotary base for 3dimensinal observation of samples under the scope! Way to go, Abdul!
Brie Fretz, BS in Biology, MS in Physiology, joined our team to work on the behavior of aging C. elegans in mazes. Brie will also explore the behavior of worms that carry mutations related to degenerative diseases. Welcome, Brie!
Allison LaMonica, George Grosvenor, Emily Branch and Jaimee Moline, all UROP students, also joined our team Continue Reading »
Zongyu Li and Jiawei Sun recently joined our team. They are both Master’s students at the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department. They will be working alongside with Shurjo Banerjee, to develop an algorithm that can successfully track worms in mazes. This is a particularly demanding task, since the videos are quite noisy. More details Continue Reading »
The talk that Eleni was to give at the Neurology/Neuroscience Seminar Series on October 18 is rescheduled for Friday, November 22, at 12noon, room 5515 BSRB. The topic remains the same. Eleni Gourgou Oct 18
