Ukpong Eyo, an alumnus of the biology graduate program (PhD in Biology, 2012), was featured in the journal Nature Neuroscience.

Eyo was mentored by Michael Dailey, Associate Professor of Biology. This is the statement from Nature Neuroscience:

"As Nature Neuroscience celebrates its 25th anniversary, we are having conversations with both established leaders in the field and those earlier in their careers to discuss how the field has evolved, and where it is heading. This month, we are talking to Ukpong Eyo (Associate Professor of Neuroscience at the University of Virginia, USA), a glial biologist interested in the role of microglia in neurodevelopment, health and disease, about science, family, and the benefits of finding your balance."

When we reached out to Eyo about this interview with Nature Neuroscience, he had this to say about his time in the Department of Biology at the University of Iowa: "I'm appreciative of all the experience and training from UIowa."
