Happy Birthday Erin!

Last Wednesday, the Buckley crew celebrated one of our own at Top Golf Midtown!  We are so happy to have a PI as great as Erin!

A quick shout out to Paul for getting first place, and to Top Golf for having us.

Happy Birthday Erin!

2017 Southeastern Pediatric Research Conference

Our team had an amazing time attending the Southeastern Pediatric Research Conference at the Georgia Aquarium on Friday, June 9th!  The theme of this years conference was Big Data Better Care, featuring keynote presentations by Dr. Kenneth Mendl, Dr. Howard Jacob, and Dr. Colleen M. McBride. The Buckley Lab was represented at the event during the poster session of the conference when our Postdoctoral Fellow Dr. Paul Lee presented on his work in lab.  Our very own Corey Zheng also presented on our non-invasive brain monitoring using diffuse optical technologies by demonstrating our DRS (diffuse reflectance spectroscopy) and DCS (diffuse correlation spectroscopy) monitors.
Thank you to the Georgia Aquarium and the Pediatric Research Alliance for having us, we can’t wait until next year!

Welcome New Undergraduates!

We have several new team members joining us this summer, and we would would just like to take this time to welcome them!  They are all joining the lab as Undergraduate researchers, and we are so excited to have them.
Amanda Liew is a rising senior Biology Major at Georgia Tech.  Amanda is currently exploring techniques of immunohistology to interpret data in the context of biologically relevant mechanisms.
Michelle Lin is a rising senior at Georgia Tech as a Biomedical Engineering. Michelle is creating equipment automation to increase research experiment efficiency.

Arielle Margulies is a rising third year, also working towards her BS in Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech. Arielle is working on integrating a pressure sensor into the current DCS probe model, in order to improve repeatability and ease of use.

Welcome to the team ladies!
