Erica Colicino, Lindsay Rathbun, and myself all presented posters this year on spindle orientation in zebrafish morphogenesis, the role of abscission in lumen formation in vivo, and chromosomes asymmetrically segregating. Also, our collaborators Carlos Castaneda and his student Julia Riley presented their work. We got lots of great feedback and got to enjoy a lot of sun. Highlights included seeing old friends from Iowa, Seattle, and Umass, and a cat cafe. Some photos below:
I had a wonderful time at Clarkson University in Potsdam NY last Friday (November 30) giving a seminar on “The role of cell division and membrane trafficking in tissue morphogenesis”. I got some great pointers on zebrafish techniques from Ken Wallace’s group and got to watch Ken do cell transplants in the early embryo!
The highlight of my trip was seeing an old friend, Katie Stevens, who worked in our lab last summer. Here’s some photos below of Clarkson University’s campus, Hockey, and Katie.

My laboratory is actively looking for Graduate students so reach out!
Congrats Dr. Erica Colicino! You have been an amazing member of the Hehnly Laboratory. While I’m sad to see you move on, I’m excited for you to go out in the world and show science what you can do!
Dr. Colicino gave a great talk on Nov 8, and not only passed her Ph.D. defense but was awarded a degree with honors. I couldn’t be more proud.
