Majewska Lab Member Shares How Figures Help Effectively Communicate Science

Thursday, May 9, 2024

MaKenna Cealie, a neuroscience graduate student in the Majewska lab, was recently interviewed about how she uses figures and illustrations in her research. The article on BioRender highlights the importance of communicating science effectively, the figure she is most proud of, and how she has even what she enjoys doing outside of the lab.  

Using a cellular approach, Cealie aims to understand the affected mechanisms of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD). She was awarded an F31 by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) to study microglia dynamics and their interactions with Purkinje cells after developmental ethanol exposure, using two-photon, in vivo imaging.
