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 been preparing for the past few months together with collaborators Carlotta Mummolo (NJIT) and Teppei Matsui (University of Tokyo School of Medicine).
