Lindsay, Julie, Erin, Abrar, Nikhila, and Jessica all attended the CNY zebrafish conference this year at Syracuse University. Lindsay did a great job with her seminar that utilized an ontogenetic system with the small GTPase Rab11 and Julie presented on PLK1 in the zebrafish embryo during the poster session. Here are some pictures below:
Lots of awesome stuff happening in the Hehnly Lab! Michael and Julie are graduating from Syracuse University, Lindsay was awarded a summer fellowship to help support her thesis completion, Erin is going off to Graduate school in May at Duke, Nikhila is doing a rotation with us, and Abrar and Jessica have joined to do their graduate work! To celebrate we had a dinner! The menu included Steak Au Poivre, a fresh pasta dish (taken from the Herb Farm cookbook), a butter lettuce salad (also taken from the Herb Farm cookbook), bread, and chocolates and fresh fruit for desert all thanks to Mike Chang. Included below are some pictures. As always the youngest lab member, Bart Chang was present.
And we took a Lab Photo!
Congrats to Michael and Julie on a great poster presentation, getting Research Distinction awards, and soon to be graduating from Syracuse University! The Hehnly lab is super excited to keep both of them next year as research technicians while they prepare for their next steps.
Erica Colicino in the Hehnly Lab was excited to contribute to the Castaneda’s lab study on “ALS-Linked Mutations Affect UBQLN2 Oligomerization and Phase Separation in a Position- and Amino Acid-Dependent Manner”.
