Laser Ablations

We’ve been using a multiphoton microscope to slice a developing Drosophila tissue. Expansion of the cut site (called “recoil”) shows that the tissue is under tension.

Visit from a Friend

The lab enjoyed hosting Dan’s longtime friend and previous postdoc mentor, Jeff Sekelsky.

Jeff gave a great talk about his lab’s work on DNA recombination and repair.

We enjoyed the beautiful Rochester fall in a visit to Letchworth State Park- “Grand Canyon of the East”


Dan and Jeff at Letchworth

Congratulations Tara!

Our collaborator Tara Finegan, a PhD student in the lab of Bénédicte Sanson at the University of Cambridge, won the poster prize at the Physics of Living Matter Symposium. She presented her PhD work, which is awesome.
