+ Jesse Schallek has been awarded the David Mahoney Neuroimaging grant from the Dana Foundation. The grant will support efforts to translate new metrics of blood flow evaluation into the clinical population.

+ Congratulations to Juliette McGregor on receiving the Steadman Family Interdisciplinary Research Award, which recognizes an outstanding Postdoc at the University of Rochester whose research exemplifies the importance of cross-discipline approaches towards examining high impact questions of science.

+ Congratulations to Andres Guevara for receiving the CONACYT fellowship award. The award supports his research that will develop new ways to extract optical contrast from highly translucent neurons of the retina.
