Whew! This is a busy semester for the lab. We really enjoyed having Miranda Arnold join us for the first rotation and are happy to have Felicia Ebot-Ojong and Alex Waugh joining us for the 2nd rotation. I am also in the midst of teaching Cell Biology (CBIO3400) for the first time. The students are great and it has been challenging, but also awesome and fun. I’m also coteaching a First Year Odyssey seminar on finding and succeeding in research with my colleague Dr. Amanda Frossard (Chemistry); our students are so eager to learn and excited about finding a research group to join. It has been really fun to hear their ideas and watch them settle into college life. We have a couple of grants due this month and are eager to move lots of scientific progress forward in the remainder of the semester.
