We were finally able to gather as a group for an ice cream social to celebrate the end of a very long year –Cheers to science for our vaccinations! Our fantastic students were so resilient during this past difficult year and kept our research on track. We had so much to celebrate: Aayush and Chloe will be graduating in a few weeks, Jessie will be leaving for her 4th year clinical + research externship at Boys Town, Courtney has been promoted to our Senior RA, and Leah will be working towards an honors thesis.
Our fabulous student Aayush Sharma successfully defended his undergraduate honors research thesis this afternoon! Aayush was our first student to join the lab as an undergraduate student and spend his entire undergraduate career at OSU with us. Aayush will be graduating with an Honors Research Distinction in Neuroscience and has been accepted into Medical School. We’re so incredibly proud of Aayush and can’t wait to see what his future holds!
