Congratulations to Jaekyoon Kim, who successfully defended his doctoral dissertation on August 1! Jaekyoon’s thesis was entitled, “The effects of G-protein-coupled estrogen receptor (GPER) on cell signaling, dendritic spines, and memory consolidation in the female mouse hippocampus”. His next stop is a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Iowa with Dr. Ted Abel. Good luck Jaekyoon–we will miss you!!
