Visiting Clarkson University to present on Cell Division and Membrane Trafficking

by Heidi Hehnly in , ,

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.

Celebrating a great summer and Katrina with salt fish!

We were lucky to have Katrina Stevens from Clarkson University join us for a summer research program (SURF Upstate).  She did some exceptional work with her graduate student mentor Erica Colicino on chromosome missegregation in cancer cells. To celebrate we had a delicious dinner with friends/collaborators (the Castaneda lab), where we enjoyed Salt Fish (Salmon steamed in a mound of salt) and libations.  Katrina is at the head of the table in the fourth picture.
