About Connie

Connie has been working in Neuroscience for 26 years. A few of pre-CSU highlights include: She helped build the world’s largest rodent sleep recording lab, worked with narcoleptic dogs, studied rat circadian rhythms for NASA’s STS-90 Neurolab Space Shuttle mission, recorded circadian rhythms of desert beetles that spent 6 months on the Mir Space Station. As Lab Manager in the Hentges Lab for the past 12 years, Connie has contributed to all of the lab’s projects and has also led her own studies on energy balance regulation. Connie’s technical expertise ranges from molecular approaches to whole-animal behavior. Connie especially enjoys and excels at challenging surgical procedures and the lab relies on that expertise heavily. Connie lives with her husband Rick of 28 years, Buddy her 12-year-old wirehaired dachshund, and Holly her rescue Lhasa Apso. Outside of the lab, Connie spends her time cooking, reinventing her garden and creating ceramic and sewn items.
