Congratulations Holly!

We are super happy for our friend Holly Lovegrove, who has been awarded a Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellowship to support her work on cell division in vertebrate cells and tissues. This prestigious award reflects the judgement of a distinguished panel of scientist, who correctly concluded that Holly is great.

Lab Warming Party

Our friends and colleagues joined us on Friday to help celebrate our new lab space. Nicole and Tyler sorted out most of the party food, which included Mitotic Spindle Cupcakes and Pineapple Cheddar Hedgehogs representing (roughly) the shape of Dan’s head.

News from the Lab

We’re very pleased to have been awarded a Pilot Grant from the University of Rochester Medical Center to support our work in organoids.

We’re also happy to welcome Allison, our newest lab member. Allison will be working with Nicole to generate tagged proteins in Drosophila using CRISPR-mediated genome editing.
