Drs. Miriam Goodman and Merritt Maduke receive tenure

With the road to tenure universally acknolwedged as being long and arduous, it gives me extreme pleasure to pass along the news that Dr. Miriam Goodman and Dr. Merritt Maduke recently received tenure promotions from Stanford University. If you are in the greater Silicon Valley area, pop by Stanford this Friday, 3/12, to help us celebrate the promotion of these two excellent neuroscientists. The party will be in room 100 of Beckman, starting at 12 pm.

For information about the research of tenured professors Goodman and Maduke, wander on over to their laboratory websites.

Goodman Lab, studying sensory transduction in C.elegans.

Maduke Lab, studying chloride-selective ion channels and transporters.
