Violet Sorrentino is awarded an NSF-GRFP Fellowship! Congratulations Violet!
Big YAY... the lab’s first research paper is published in eLife! It describes our discovery of glial pruning in C. elegans, and role of glial pruning in sensory behavior. Huge Cheers for Stephan Raiders (first author) and Erik Black (second author)!
Amina Khan, a freshman at UW, joins the lab as an undergraduate intern. Welcome, Amina!
Welcome to rotation student Randal Eck (UW Neuroscience program)!
Raiders et al, J. Neurosci: we had a blast writing this multi-lab review on glial pruning! Check it out here.
The Singhvi Lab welcomes Rachel Reed on board as our Research Administrator! She makes sure our lab stays ship-shape (and out of all sorts of trouble!). Besides shepherding us, she is also a cool cat-mom and a naturalist who loves dispersed camping.
Stephan Raiders receives the Paul Neiman Outstanding Graduate Student Award. Congratulations, Stephan!
The Singhvi lab's first research preprint is now on biorxiv!
Stephan Raiders receives the NIH-F31 Predoctoral Training Fellowship! Congratulations Stephan!
Violet Sorrentino is selected for a competitive CMBG Training Grant Award. Congratulations, Violet!!
The lab receives its first NIH - NINDS R01 funding, yay! So much exciting glia biology to continue exploring.
Huge Congrats to German Rojas for passing his General Exams. Singhvi Lab’s third student (in less than a year!!!) to advance to PhD Candidacy! We started with a socially-distanced picnic.
Violet Sorrentino joins the lab, welcome Violet!
Welcome to rotation students Sujin Byeon, Pralaksha Gurung (UW Neuroscience program) and Violet Sorrentino (MCB program). The “virtual” rotation in a wet lab (unfortunate COVID19 era fallout) can be challenging, but all three of these young scientists stayed amazingly engaged and driven!
A complete lab shut-down for months was hard. We helped each other keep our glia in shape through zoom chats/TeaVino hours/games.
Heartiest congratulations to Maria Purice for being awarded a Washington Research Foundation Post-doctoral Fellowship!
From our lab to all of you – happy holidays!
December 18th, 2019 - The Singhvi lab thanks The Glenn Foundation and American Federation for Aging Research for their support of our work.

November 8th, 2019 - Big Congrats to Stephan Raiders for passing his General Exams and becoming Singhvi Lab’ s first student to advance to PhD candidacy! Celebrations included a lab boardgame night.
OOOH…Yeah! Singhvi Lab wins the Most Horrific Pumpkin Award 2nd year in a row!! Mutagenesis gone wrong Pumpkinstein sprouted pig body parts. Go Team! (although pig-brain-in-red-gel zipping around on Roomba in PI's office was freaky yuck!)
Serious about our annual Serious Pie outing.
Welcome to rotation student Victoria Mallet (UW MCB program)

Singhvi lab WINS the uber-competitive and heavily coveted Fred Hutch Pumpkin Carving Award as the “Most Horrific Pumpkin”! OOOO-YAY!!! Live worms, broken pipette through torn gloves, broken Nobel medal and specimen slides….and an ongoing plastic roach infestation in the PI’s office (YIKES!)
Maria Purice joins the lab as our first postdoc, welcome Maria!
Sneha wins a competitive T32 Neuroscience Training grant award. Congratulations, Sneha!
Riley Kimsey joins the lab as our Research Administrator, welcome Riley! She keeps our administrative toes in line, and her favorite color is (128, 0, 128).
Science and fun at the Fred Hutch Basic Science Retreat, Museum of Flight.
Awesome news: Stephan, Sneha and Cecilia have their “previous lab” papers out + multiple birthday celebrations! i.e. we spent every week with cake, beer, or both, for months (oh, and a “no-photo-evidence” lab ice-cream outing). We forgot to take pics of all.
Erik Black joins the lab as Research Technician, meme collator, and official Radiohead fan. Welcome Erik!
