2019, July 22nd – A survey into the early neural representations of odorants. The entry-level olfactory inputs and the further processed olfactory bulb outputs appear to represent different aspects of smell beyond the physical-chemical properties of molecules sampled.  Jointly with the Koulakov group.

2019, May 1st – Generous support from the BRAIN Initiative to understand the logic of olfactory bulb projections across the brain. Functional in vivo imaging of odorant responses and MAPseq in search of meaningful patterns. A joint enterprise with the Koulakov and Zador groups.

2018, November 28th – Glomeruli receive mixed odorant receptor input in the absence of the olfactory marker protein OMP. A project spanning a decade-long journey.

2018, October 2nd –  Generous support from the NIH to understand the functional basis of olfaction, NIH Transformative Research Award . A joint effort with the Koulakov and Zador labs.
