Calcium-Sensitive Dosimeters to Monitor Neuronal Activity

One of the central objectives of modern neurobiological research is to elucidate the relationship between structure and function in the human brain. Neuronal activity is often monitored indirectly through calcium sensors, but imaging thousands of neurons in three dimensions in real time remains a challenge.

Message to Sponsor

I would like to express my utmost gratitude to the generous donors of the Rose Hills Foundation who have given me the opportunity to dedicate this summer to research. It is truly an honor to be selected as a 2014 SURF/Rose Hills Fellow and I sincerely thank you. Out of this experience, I hope to acquire a deeper understanding of the highly interdisciplinary field of neuroscience, and expand my knowledge of organic synthesis and molecular biology. Lastly, I would like to thank Professor Evan Miller and Parker Deal for their mentorship, support, and for being inspiring role models to me as extraordinary scientists.
