Diana You was awarded a Special Study Award by the Graduate School. With this award, Diana visited the laboratory of Dr. Patrick Ronaldson at University of Arizona for a 3-day training on the isolation of brain microvessels from rodents. Dr. Ronaldson’s laboratory has extensive expertise in this procedure and has utilized it as described in several works previously done in his lab. From this training, Diana learned an unique technique that will serve a critical role to advance her project on investigating the epigenetic regulation of the transporter at the blood-brain barrier.
