3D Print of the Week

3D print of the week: device to monitor liquid intake in mice

Undergraduate Alexandra Vargas made use of the Biomedical Library’s free 3D Printing service for her research project sponsored by the Penn Undergraduate Research Mentoring Program.

This week’s featured 3D print is a device to monitor liquid intake in mice for a project to build an “automated mouse home-cage” with a two-bottle choice test at Dr. Nicholas Betley’s Lab. The Betley Lab’s research is focused on understanding how the brain processes information from the external world to facilitate the appropriate behavioral responses needed for survival.

The 3D print was requested by undergraduate student Alexandra Vargas who works at the lab and whose work was funded by the Penn Undergraduate Research Mentoring Program of the Center for Undergraduate Research & Fellowships (CURF).
