EDITORIAL | Issue 2022 | Editors: Kate Geisinger (outgoing) and Ava Stoddard (incoming), Appalachian State University
Goodbye: Kate Geisinger
During my time at IMPULSE, the journal and community have experienced its share of unprecedented challenges and changes coming out of an extremely difficult year. Yet the undergraduate neuroscience community prevailed and presented an amazing year of research and discovery in 2022! It has been an incredibly rewarding experience and opportunity to have grown from Associate Editor all the way to Editor-in-Chief during my collegiate career. I am very thankful to have been able to work and learn alongside our previous Editor-in-Chief, Charlotte Godfrey, I could not have asked for a better mentor and team member. I would also like to extend a huge thank you to Dr. Mark Zrull for his teachings and passion for undergraduate research and scientific exploration. I am forever thankful for this role and the opportunity for learning and growth that has come along with it. Being afforded this space and involvement with this journal has given me many memories and experiences I hold very dear and will carry with me as I continue in my education and career.
I have full confidence in Ava Stoddard as she moves into the Editor-in-Chief role. A passionate and very talented Executive Editor, There is no task too tall for her to accomplish! With both Dr. Mark Zrull’s guidance and teaching, and our talented editorial staff, I look forward to seeing another year of incredible studies and publications from IMPULSE!
Hello: Ava Stoddard
I am beyond excited to continue on with IMPULSE in a new capacity as editor in chief and have enjoyed all that I have learned while working as an associate editor. I am continually impressed with my peers, and thankful for the opportunity to learn alongside them. Additionally, our team at IMPUSLE is grateful to have Dr. Mark Zrull, who has carried IMPULSE through the years. I’m honored to be able to contribute the 20th year of publishing at IMPULSE, and our entire team is looking forward to yet another year of notable and exciting research!
