Biggest congratulations to new Ph.D. recipient Jon Wong who presented his dissertation exit seminar today. Unfortunately it had to be over Zoom due to COVID-19 so we could not all celebrate in person, but Jon did a great job. Hope I didn’t roast him too much in my intro!

I was so fortunate to have Jon as my first graduate student – he brought his intelligence and diligence and was an amazing teacher and mentor to the others in the lab.

Jon actually joined my lab before my lab was built, so we went through some growing pains together, but he stuck with it and wrote a beautiful dissertation “Electrophysiological Characterization of NMDA Receptor Modulation by its Co-Agonists.”  Congrats Dr. Wong!
