The Impact Factor for Brain Research is up to 3.125, a 14% increase over last year and a 22% increase since Dr. LaVoie was named Editor-in-Chief. This great news was the result of the wonderful team effort across our esteemed collection of Senior Editors, our Journal Manager, Ross Hildrew, and of course the many scientists who chose Brain Research to communicate their excellent work.
Recent collaboration with the Yuan lab at HMS Cell Biology suggests LRRK2 regulates a novel cell death pathway.
Our undergraduate extraordinaire received a Hoopes Prize From Harvard College for her outstanding Senior Thesis conducted in the LaVoie lab. Great Job, Hailey!!
