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.
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!
