Lamya’a Dawud M.S., a doctoral student in Dr. Sondra Bland's lab with the department of Integrative and Systems Biology and a recipient of the 2019 Fall Graduate Student Travel Award, CLAS Travel Award, and Graduate School Travel Award  has recently returned from presenting a poster at the Society for Neuroscience 2019 national conference in Chicago, Illinois.  In her presentation, she shared her research on the effects of social buffering in a social fear conditioning preclinical model where there was a better recovery of fear during a stressful situation if a social conspecific was present during the stressful situation. She is grateful to the CU Integrative and Systems Biology department, The Graduate School, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences for their generous travel support.
