PhD Dissertation: Mechanisms of cold tolerance in tardigrades (Hypsibius exemplaris)

Lyons will be working as an NSF PRFB Postdoctoral Fellow at University of San Francisco and the Weill Institute of Neuroscience. She will be establishing tardigrades as a model for systems-level neuroscience—developing methods in transgenics, behavioral assays, and whole-brain, whole-body live imaging in tardigrades—to undercover foundational circuits underlying cognition and multi-limbed movement, in the lab of Professor Saul Kato.
