An ‘Academic Minute’ on hagfish biomechanics

Dr. Fudge appeared on the podcast “Academic Minute” recently, where he discussed the results of a recent paper led by MSc student Sarah Boggett on the biomechanics of predator-prey interactions between hagfishes and sharks. You can listen to the podcast...

More on slime gland refilling from Sarah Schorno

PhD student Sarah Schorno’s latest publication is on the cellular basis of refilling in hagfish slime glands. This paper represents a major leap forward in our understanding of how hagfishes recharge their slime glands after a sliming event. Here is the link to...

Fudge Lab receives NSF funding

The Fudge Lab was awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation for a project entitled “Biogenesis and evolution of hagfish slime and slime glands.” The project is a collaboration with Dr. David Plachetzki at the University of New Hampshire and will...

Hagfish vs. Shark Paper is out!

Our paper on the biomechanics of hagfish interactions with toothy predators is now out in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface. This project was led by U of Guelph MSc student Sarah Boggett, Guelph undergraduate Jean-Luc Stiles and was a collaboration with Adam...

Welcome Gaurav!

Dr. Gaurav Jain will be joining the Fudge Lab in February to work on a hagfish slime biomimetics project. Gaurav got his PhD in Biomedical Engineering at Virginia Tech and he’ll be coming to us from his previous position at NYU.
