Neuron and Glia -inseparable sisters in the Labyrinth of Thought,
Fingers intertwined, singing in strange argot.
Yet, identical peas in a pod? Certainly not.
Neuron, full of action and potential; her electrifying intelligence a legend.
Glia, shy and soft-spoken; helping, cooking and ever running an errand.
Naturally then, Neuron often commanded the attention scend.
Still, Cajal found Glia more enigmatic than she showed; he was prescient!
When biologists realized that even Neuron heeded Glia’s counsel to be efficient,
They started forging tools to translate the sisters’ descant…

Does cellular and molecular neuroscience interest you? Unravelling the mysteries of how glia and neurons communicate? If yes, we are always eager for enthusiastic researchers at all levels to join the lab!
Our lab is located at Fred Hutch. We are also affiliated with the Department of Biological Structure, University of Washington - School of Medicine.
