In August we can congratulate twice. Maike Kneist and Monique Jäger successfully completed their bachelor’s degree. Maike’s bachelor’s thesis is entitled “Poly (I:C) animal model of schizophrenia – involvement of the gut-brain axis”. Monique submitted her thesis entitled “Molecular Correlates of Altered Mating Behavior in an Animal Model of Bipolar Disorder”. We wish both of them all the best for their future.
