Please welcome Alana Miranda Pinheiro who is new PhD Student in Vægter's group

Alana started in Christian Vægter's group in the beginning of January. It is now well established that injury to peripheral nerves results in activation of SGCs surrounding the soma of the injured neurons. Utilizing in vivo models, Alana will characterize the injury-response of satellite glial cells (SGC) at transcriptional and proteomic level.…
