Dr. Emily Anne Witt is a Killam Postdoctoral Research Fellow exploring cytoskeletal regulatory dynamics during synaptogenesis and connectivity in the CNS, and behavioural consequences of the ablation of cytoskeletal regulators during brain formation. She obtained a PhD from the Psychology program at University of North Carolina. (Killam Postdoctoral Fellowship).
Danielle Stanton-Turcotte is a PhD student working the neuronal specification and patterning, and regulation of axonal projections within the developing neocortex. She obtained a BSc degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York. (DMRF-Medical Neurosciences scholarship).
Marley Blommers is a graduate student exploring cytoskeletal regulators of neuroanatomical organization and connectivity in the brain. He obtained his BSc (Honours) in Neuroscience at Dalhousie University, and completed is honours project in the lab studying neuroblast development in the retina. (CGS-M scholarship).
