He finished his obligatory service in Gumushane State Hospital, Gumushane, Turkey in 2012. He joined the lab in August of 2012 and is involved in animal housing, breeding, and rodent surgeries.

Douglas B. Kintner

Doug joined the lab in October of 2011. He comes with over 36 years of experience in basic neuroscience research on UW campus. Currently, Doug is working on developing methods to measure intracellular ions using fluroprobes and confocal imaging.

Stephanie L. Marquez

Stephanie joined the lab in the fall of 2012 as part of the Undergraduate Research Scholar program. She will be doing fixing of brains and slicing for immunological staining. She will also be starting a pilot project to monitor the core temperature of mouse pups during hypoxia.

Giovanni Rodriguez

Givoanni joined the lab in the fall of 2012 as part of the Undergraduate Research Scholar program. She will be doing Western blotting on brains from neonatal mice following hypoxia ischemia probing for activation of downstream effectors of the TrkB receptors.

Wenzhu (Wendy) Sun

Wendy joined the lab in the fall of 2012 as part of the Undergraduate Research Scholar program. She will be doing immunohistological staining for myelin basic protein and neurofilament the corpus collosum of neonatal mice subjected to hypoxia-ischemia.
