The Chee(t) Sheet


Photoshoot 2022

November 2nd, 2022

We posed for headshots and competed for Best Not-Impressed Face (i.e., patiently awaiting instructions for a group photo)

Summer-end-welcome-back retreat 2022

September 9th, 2022

We enjoyed an easy hike in Gatineau Park and enjoyed a picnic on the MacKenzie King Estate. The sun was shining brightly, the lawn was luscious, our legs were tired, but the camaraderie was priceless. Modern amenities on the premises, as promised

Support our Science Rally

August 11th, 2022

Summer 2022

No summer at Carleton could be complete without plentiful groundhog sightings. Gotta see ‘em all!

Gordon Research Conference - Hypothalamus

July 24-29, 2022

What an AWESOME conference dedicated to our collective love for the hypothalamus.
Melissa gave a talk and asked strangers if they knew there were dopamine cells in the hypothalamus (answer is YES!). Bianca and Mikayla presented posters. 
Oh, and for fun, we walked along Santa Monica beach, hiked sandy dunes in Malibu, listened to sunbathing sea lions bark at one another, and got introduced to Trader Joe’s.
