Dr. Tanja Godenschwege (Associate Professor, Biology) was invited to serve on an NIH Special Emphasis Panel for the review of 33 R15 grant applications- Academic Research Enhancement Award (Parent R15) 

R15 grant applications are typically from scientists at schools that underscore teaching and have restricted major federal research funding. Dr. Godenschwege was invited due to her “expertise in various aspects of synapse formation and general neuroscience, as well as (her) use of Drosophila as a model system and (her) review experience makes (her) a good candidate for this review panel” according to a letter from Thomas M. Beres, Ph.D., Scientific Review Officer at the Cell Biology Integrated Review Group, Center for Scientific Review, National Institutes of Health.
