New post-doc in R. Benton’s lab

Welcome to Adria Le Boeuf! Adria obtained her B.A. from the University of California, Santa Barbara where she studied the contributions of microtubule dynamics to neurodegenerative disease. For her PhD work in Jim Hudspeth’s lab of Sensory Neuroscience at the Rockefeller University, she studied the biophysical and mechanical contributions of electrostatics to the mechanosensory organelles of the inner ear, and was granted a National Research Service Award from the NIDCD, receiving her PhD in 2011. Since June 2011, she is pursuing her post-doctoral research jointly in Richard Benton lab and that of Laurent Keller (Department of Ecology and Evolution, UNIL) on ant chemosensory genetics and behavior.
