Eleni was awarded a grant from the University of Michigan Office of Research (UMOR) Faculty Grants and Awards Program, to work on 3D-printing Agar-Based Hydrogel for use in C. elegans Behavioral Assays. Allen Hsu (Medical School) and Kira Barton (ME Dept) will be our collaborators, and Steel Cardoza (senior, Materials Science and Engineering Dept) Continue Reading »
Eleni’s career award is featured at Mechanical Engineering Dept news website:
Our paper titled “A mathematical and computational model of the calcium dynamics in C. elegans ASH sensory neuron” (Ehsan Mirzakhalili, Bogdan Epureanu, Eleni Gourgou) is now accepted for publication in PLOS ONE!
