Two biomedical sciences doctoral students have returned to OSU-CHS after presenting their research last month in Ireland.

Sheri Core and Dusti Sloan won travel awards to present their research during the joint meeting of the American Physiological Society and The Physiological Society in Dublin, Ireland. The students received the travel awards from the groups’organizing committee.

Core studies the estrogen modulation of behavioral responses to body sodium imbalance and the role of specific types of neurons in the central nervous system. Sloan’s research focuses on central interactions between estrogen and oxytocin in the control of feeding and body weight.
