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:
Erica Colicino and Lindsay Rathbun (Hehnly Lab Graduate students) did a great job at their posters this year! Presenting on the role of Gravin and PLK1 in centrosome function (Erica) and Spindle and cleavage furrow positioning during embryonic patterning (Lindsay).
Lindsay Rathbun and Erica Colicino did a great job this year presenting their work at ASCB in San Francisco! Erica talked about her study on the spatial and temporal regulation of the mitotic kinase Plk1 and Lindsay presented her work on the role of division orientation during 3D expansion and embryonic patterning.
