Douglas leaves the Unit this week having spent ten months in the laboratory of Peter Somogyi completing his Pro Gradu thesis "The expression and effect of the NK1 receptor in GABAergic interneurons of the hippocampus". Douglas chose his project in neuroscience because of his fascination with the function of the brain and he carried out this research project as part of his University of Oulu (Finland) studies. He returns to Finland to complete his MSc Degree in protein Science and Biotechnology.
We congratulate Douglas on his successful time in the Unit and his success in obtaining a PhD Studentship (Neuroscience) at the University of Tubingen, Germany. We wish him well in his future scientific career.
