Eve wins the Whalen thesis award!
Congratulations to Eve Glenn who was awarded the 2022 Richard E. Whalen Award for Undergraduate Research: Excellence in Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology!!!
The Richard E. Whalen Award was established in 1996 to mark the 40th anniversary of Professor Whalen’s graduation from Brown. In the spirit of Professor Whalen’s lifelong devotion and many contributions to research in the area of the biological underpinnings of behavior, the award is granted each year from the CLPS department to an undergraduate who has shown research excellence in the area of neuroscience and the biological basis of behavior broadly defined.
Eve's thesis work concentrated around understanding the subtle behavioral differences in flies that escalate alcohol self-administration and the neural correlates of this response in the Drosophila memory system. Eve presented her honors research at the Neuroscience Undergraduate Honors Symposium on May 3, 2022.
