Abraham Palmer presents seminar titled “Tomorrow’s outbred mice, the genetics of amphetamine-induced euphoria, and why some mice are more anxious that others” at Oregon Health & Sciences University
Abraham Palmer is co-author on new paper titled “QTL analysis of the properties of soleus muscle fibers in a cross between LG/J and SM/J mouse strains.” In Frontiers in Genetics
The paper has been published online and can be found here. Thanks to Ari and Andrew who did most of the hard work.
Abraham Palmer appointed to Executive committee for Multidisciplinary Psychiatric Genetics Training Program
The executive committee is responsible for didactic training and selects and reviews student applications. This grant (T32MH200065) is up for renewal this year.
