Katie Luckett (Biochemistry '16) received a travel award from the Faculty for Undergraduate Education (FUN) to attend the Society for Neuroscience meetings with Jean Hardwick this fall in Chicago, IL. This international conference is attended by ~30,000 scientists from around the world.  Katie presented the research she has been working in Jean’s lab over the past two years, which focuses on the role of neuropeptides in neuronal regulation of the heart.  Katie also received support the H&S student travel fund and the Biology Department for her attendance at this conference.
