The Harvard Gazette discusses the work of the two Harvard affiliated MacArthur Foundation 2015 fellows, Beth Stevens and Matthew Desmond.
We’re proud to announce that Beth is a 2015 MacArthur fellow! According to the MacArthur Foundation website, these fellowships are awarded to “talented individuals who have shown extraordinary originality and dedication in their creative pursuits and a marked capacity for self-direction. There are three criteria for selection of Fellows: exceptional creativity, promise for important future advances based on a track record of significant accomplishment, and potential for the fellowship to facilitate subsequent creative work”. Congratulations Beth!

Dori Schafer, founding member of the Stevens lab, has moved to UMass Medical School to start her own lab. There she will be continuing the work on the roles of neuron-glia interactions in synaptic development and plasticity that she pioneered while in the Stevens lab. We will miss her, but wish her the best of luck for the future! Here is more information about her lab at UMass: http://profiles.umassmed.edu/Profiles/display/11500747
Our student Bianca Nfonoyim was awarded the 2015 Thomas Temple Hoopes Prize for her undergraduate research on the role of microglia and complement in Alzheimer’s Disease. Congratulations Bianca!
Congratulations to our excellent students Cheta Emba, Christopher Gordon, and Bianca Nfonoyim, who just received their bachelor’s degrees from Harvard. Best of luck for the future!
Congratulations to Jenelle who passed her qualifying exams with flying colors!
The Stevens Lab is excited to announce a new publication by Dori Schafer, Emily Lehrman, Chris Heller, and Beth Stevens. In “An engulfment assay: a protocol to assess interactions between CNS phagocytes and neurons“, published in JoVE, the authors explain how to perform the microglia engulfment assay developed in the lab.
