Suter Lab showcases research at Purdue Spring Fest
Large sea slugs as well as their large neurons shown live under the microscope, Zebrafish embryos, and an instructional video were part of the Suter lab outreach activity during the 2013 Purdue Spring Fest, April 13-14. The lab uses advanced microscopy techniques to investigate biochemical and biomechanical signals that regulate directional neuronal growth during normal nervous system development as well as during regeneration. Research in the Suter lab is currently supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
This is the fifth time the Suter lab participated in the Spring Fest activities organized by the Department of Biological Sciences. Other demonstrations included chick embryos by the Fekete lab, electrocardiogram measurements by Dr. Walls as well as a marine animal exhibit by Dr. Gedney.
