We had a great time sharing our work and hearing from our colleagues at the DBNY meeting in Ithaca!
The lab surprised Dan with pie and a gift for his birthday. This was not the most flattering picture of the lab taken that day, but it’s his favorite, and he runs the blog.
Nick is heading back to Great Britain to enjoy his retirement. We’re very sad to see him go, but we wish him all the best!
NIcole and Christian have been using Python to transform confocal images (originally a cultured cell layer) into beautiful nerd art.
We were happy to welcome our friends in the Hehnly lab (Syracuse) back to Rochester for another all day Hehnberglystralh mini-symposium. They’re doing some really exciting work! It was fun to hear about it, and to share our own science.
Nicole (and her poster, which describes some of the work she’s been doing with intestinal organoids) won Second Prize at the Rochester Advanced Materials Program symposium! This year’s theme was Biologically Engineered Materials. Thanks to the organizers, especially our friend Anne Meyer, for putting together a fascinating day of presentations.
We were very happy to host Sifan’s parents and grandparents in the lab this morning. They are visiting Rochester for her graduation on Sunday.
The Catherine Block Memorial Fund Prize, established in memory of Catherine Block, an exceptional chemistry student at the University of Rochester, is awarded each year to a woman in the junior class in recognition of her outstanding ability and achievement in the field of science.
Congratulations to Christian, who has mastered the art (but not the science) of Physics.
