My first publication is finally available to the public, and now I can finally say that I am a 100% bona fide published scientist! The article's primary focus is explaining the technique in which we exercise fruit flies and the precise methods we use to study if adult exercise can reduce the negative effects that arise from consuming a high-fat during childhood. The paper is available to all online through the Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE). The article includes a classic manuscript describing in thorough detail our methods for exercising the flies along with a video showing the methods conducted live in our lab by none other than Team TreadWheel itself.
I can't begin to tell explain how exciting it is to have this out for the world to see. This is the culmination of all the hard work I, along with my team, put into my research as an undergraduate. I couldn't be happier to have this work available in JoVE, since it is an amazing journal dedicated to providing scientists with in depth protocols and applications for a variety of techniques and procedures. I am so excited to share our machine and techniques with the community and look forward to what exercise-related questions others can explore with our technology.
