The Stevens Lab is thrilled to announce a publication by Allison Bialas and Beth Stevens, “TGF-β signaling regulates neuronal C1q expression and developmental synaptic refinement” has been published in Nature Neuroscience. Click the link to read!
The lab is very pleased to welcome Christina Welsh, a graduate student in the Program in Neuroscience at Harvard. Christina graduated with a B.S. in Biology from MIT in 2012, and joins our lab excited to examine the roles played by neural-immune interactions during development.
Welcome and good luck Christina!
Our new technician Steve has some fun with pipetting!
The Stevens Lab says goodbye to our fantastic postdoc Ryuta Koyama and his family. Best of luck with everything Ryuta, Mami, and little Taiga! We will miss you!!
The lab is thrilled to welcome our newest postdoctoral researcher, Dan Wilton . Dan joins us from the laboratory of Rhona Mirsky and Kristjan Jessen at UCL, and will be focussing on the role of complement and microglia in the pathogenesis of Huntington’s diseases.
Welcome and good luck Dan!
The lab is very pleased to welcome Yuwen Wu, a graduate student in the Program in Neuroscience at Harvard. Yuwen graduated with an Honors B.A. in Biology from the University of Chicago in 2012 and joined the Stevens lab in 2013. She is interested in how the central nervous system interacts with the immune system to establish proper neuronal circuitry during development and plasticity.
Welcome and good luck Yuwen!
The Stevens lab says goodbye to Nicola Mattugini, who worked with us this summer through a Giovanni Armenise-Harvard Foundation Summer Fellowship. Thank you and good luck in the future, Nicola!
Beth Stevens Receives Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers
