Exciting Things Happening In the Hooker Lab!

Greetings! This post is aimed at giving everyone who visits this group website a more behind the scenes view on what takes place on a day-to-day basis in the Hooker lab. There is a great diversity in this lab, so every day there is something new and exciting going on. Here is a preview as to what some of our group members will be doing this week:

Misha: Running Western blots on rat brain tissue from animals treated 
with novel radioprobes; Analyzing immunohistochemical data from rat 
brain tissue, and reconstructing PET images collected for a clinical study 
investigating chronic pain.

Nicole -  I am currently finishing a response to the IRB based on elements from an exciting Autism kick-off meeting on Monday as well as working on a review, while attenuation maps for an MR/PET study are running in the background. I also spent some time trouble-shooting the lab computer.

Marjorie: "The matlab week!"
I'm currently processing PET-MR data using a mix of tools from FSL, 
FreeSurfer, SPM and my own matlab codes. I'm proud of my first 
FreeSurfer-derived ROI to process our dynamic PET images!

Al Schroeder;
1. rat brain protein analysis (Does our new inhibitor predictably 
suppress enzyme activity?)
2. human brain PET imaging analysis (Using small regions of interest, 
can we gain insight into how an anesthetic drug works?)
3. switching desks (Can I swing my arms around freely and NOT hit 
anyone?)
4. contributing to the blog (Will posting increase my street cred?)

Stephanie Lie - Building and performing parametric map analysis of the group's past non-human primate fMRI studies of the brain utilizing a variety of pharmacological challenges. 

William Taylor- improving yield and purfication methods for the Palladum-catalyzed Suzuki cross coupling reaction.

These are just a few examples of the exciting and diverse research that takes place all right here in the Hooker lab. We will continue to keep this blog updated with new intriguing details on what will be happening next, as well as any interesting news or results that may be found in this lab.
