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.
