I had a great time visiting Iowa and my PhD advisor Mark Stamnes. It was great fun presenting our lab’s work on “the role of division and membrane trafficking in tissue morphogenesis”. It was also nice to see friends and see how much Iowa City has grown!
Bart Hehnly Chang’s training to become a future cell biologist. Featured is Judy (lab manager) showing him around the fish room, and Nikhila showing him the ropes on our spinning disk confocal with laser ablation!
The Bergstralh and Hehnly Lab Mitosis Club was super fun and held at University of Rochester yesterday. Our lab learned a bunch about cell-cell adhesions and their remodeling during division from Dan’s group. There was great stories about 3-D stem culture models, Drosophila models, and from our lab zebrafish and human tissue culture cells. We saw some beautiful STED micrographs and prelim laser ablation studies. I can’t wait for the next one! Those that attended from the Hehnly Lab were Julie, Nikhila, Heidi, Lindsay, and Jessica.
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”.
Definitely check it out!
