What's the Daily Dish in the Donaldson Lab?
So proud of our two seniors who pursued Senior Theses in our lab. Kylia Ahuna has been awarded the Neuroscience Award, the top honor in the Neuroscience Major, and Emma Burt won the Jacob Van Ek award, the highest honor bestowed by the College of Arts & Sciences! Congrats to both of these amazing women!
The one day a year that vole experts become the most sought-after scientists by the media!

"Zoe Donaldson is the ultimate love expert. A neuroscientist at the University of Colorado Boulder, she works to untangle the mess of hormones and neural charges that shoot off in our brains when we fall in love and make long-lasting connections with someone. This wisdom helps her grasp love’s equally universal counterpart: dying of a broken heart."
We would like to thank the Whitehall Foundation for their generous funding of our project entitled "Cellular neurobiology of social attachment." We are thrilled and grateful to have their support and looking forward to getting the project underway!
We're missing Magda and Hannah! I've officially decided that photoshop is the way to go. We can never get everyone together at the same time!
Learning new skills...
So lucky to have such amazing people in my lab! Ready to conquer 2017!
Thanks Conor for assembling our brand new microtome! Those are some stylish gloves!
Congrats to Elliott Saslow, Caeli Best, and Conor Kelly who have been awarded undergaduate fellowships from the CU Boulder Undergraduate Research Opportuinities Program to work in the Donaldson Lab.
Lab trip for yoga at a brewery... I think so!
We still have lots to order and do, but super excited to be generating data. First images of vole brains from CU Boulder! Thanks MCDB microscopy core for making taking these images painless!
Ashley graduated from Columbia University yesterday. Can't wait for her to join us in Boulder as our newest lab tech.
So many successes! The Donaldson lab is so proud of Eric Klein, Vanessa Gutzeit, and Jennifer Scribner, who will be starting new scientific adventures as they head off to Neuroscience Ph.D. programs this fall. Eric will be at Brown University, Vanessa is heading to Cornell Medical Campus, and Jennifer will be at Columbia University!
