Kat Co-Chairs Session at SICB 2019 and is Awarded Grant-in-Aid of Research

This weekend, I presented my research and co-chaired the “Hormones and Behavior II: Everything but the Birds” session at the 2019 Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology annual meeting in Tampa, Florida! During this session, I discussed my recent findings on the role of melatonin in mediating seasonal transitions in circulating androgens and aggressive behavior in male Siberian hamsters. In addition, I was selected to receive a SICB Grant-in-Aid of Research for the coming year, which will support a series of experiments I will be conducting to compare the central and peripheral effects of melatonin signaling on seasonal aggression in male and female hamsters.
