Congrats to @rachelmrahn on publishing the final work from her thesis in the Doc Lab and @joe_culver labs about using resting-state #functionalconnectivity as a marker of progression in mice with #Mecp2 deletion - modeling the neurodevelopmental condition #RettSyndrome! 🎉🎊🍾

New paper out by Bernie and collaborators in @jomoronc's lab, including @hannahefrye, is out!

Female hippocampus displays altered physiology & behavior across #estrous cycle, & dorsal hippocampus has sex-differential gene expression! Check it out:

A year in the making! Today we crowned the champion of our DocOlympics™️ Ping Ping tournament. In the finale, we had Jiayang “I’m leaving for a real salary” @WikkyChen - Allen “he’s finally gone!” Yen faced off in what, according to Jiayang, was supposed to be a quick 2x 11-4 win

Lake et al. looked into sex differences in health conditions associated with sexual assault in a large hospital population. Many of the medical conditions demonstrated sex-differential effects.

WUSM friends! Print & post this flyer! Make sure people know about reporting mechanisms!

If you think it should be mandated to put this in labs/on TV boards across campus, tell the Campus Climate Taskforce here:

Rare sighting of the PI (@joeddougherty) in the lab!!! A crowd gathered to observe the phenomenon 👩‍🔬👨‍🔬🧑‍🔬


What @TempleUniv is doing to striking grad students is reprehensible: effective immediately they are halting all benefits, pay, and they are billing them for tuition. @TempleUniv claims to care about equity; clearly they don't for @TUGSA_6290 grad students.

Had an incredible time meeting collaborators and some of my scientific inspirations at the @SFARIorg sex differences in autism conference this past weekend. Plus any travel with @din0506 is bound to be a good time. @CarpeRibosomam


Excited to share work led by @KaylaNygaard7 during her journey to PhD w/ the Doc lab & @joedougehrty to further our understanding of the behavioral genetics of #williamssyndrome

Doc Lab welcomed our latest Doc - Dr. Jiayang Chen @WikkyChen!! Jiayang presented a wonderful thesis on his #MYT1L studies, made his audience cry with his acknowledgement, and recognized @joeddougherty's mentorship with hand-written calligraphy! Jiayang, we will miss you dearly!
