Axion BioSystems Travel Award Winner: Congratulations Xioafeng Ma
Congratulations to Xioafeng Ma at Washington University St. Louis School of Medicine, this month's Travel Award winner for his research on the electrical activity of smooth uterine muscle in mice using Maestro MEA technology. Using Maestro, Xiaofeng was able to demonstrate that mouse uterine smooth muscle has different electrophysiology properties during different stages of the estrous cycle.

Held for the first time in Australia and supported by the NIH, this two day meeting will bring together a faculty of internationally leading scientists from North America, Europe, the US, Asia, and Australia. The program covers a spectrum of fundamental and translational topics related to the fields of cardiac cell therapy, cardiovascular sciences, and stem cell biology.
Come join our Europe team's Marc Baeuerle and Konstantinos Gkatzis at the Optogenetics Course in Heidelberg this Spring. They'll be exploring how MEA and optogenetics go hand in hand, and how Maestro technology is advancing the field of light-controlled cellular biology.
