2014 CSC Travel Fellowships

The following CSC trainee members were selected to receive a CSC travel award to attend the 2014 conference of the Society for Research on Biological Rhythms, at Big Sky Resort, MO, June 14-18, 2014. These were awarded on the basis of the merit of the abstract they submitted for the SRBR conference. The awardees are:

Victoria Smith, University of Calgary (laboratory of Dr. Michael Antle) for her presentation entitled: "Serotonergic enhancement of photic phase shifts: BMY7378 does not require the serotonergic fibers connecting the median raphe nucleus to the suprachiasmatic nucleus"

Marie-Amélie Lukaszewski, Saint-Justine Hospital, Montreal (laboratory of Dr. Anne-Monique Nuyt) for her presentation entitled: "Effects of neonatal transient high oxygen exposure on circadian regulation of energy metabolism of adult male rats"

Congratulations to both awardees!
