Congratulations to Emily Dale and Olivia Molano for their first and second-place finishes in the undergraduate research grant competition! Emily’s project asks how oxidative stress impacts age-related hearing loss, while Olivia’s project examines the potential for the COVID-19 therapeutic remdesivir to cause hearing damage. Both women were also recently featured on the WSU Vancouver Research social media feeds.
The lab also placed third in the Research Week RA + $10k competition, earning funds for PhD student Rikeem Sholes’s research asking how hatchery noise impacts Chinook salmon sensory systems. Checkout this great story about Rikeem in the fall issue of the Northwest Crimson & Gray.
