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.
Yesterday the Bergstralh and Hehnly lab hosted their 2nd Mitosis Microsymposium, but this time we did it in Naples NY. The Naples Biology Class participated, presented, and asked great questions during the event. I’ve attached some photos below, but special thanks to Jon Betrus for hosting and participating, and providing the most beautiful locale for dinner afterwards. SPECIAL thanks to the students of Biology at NCS for participating. Again, thanks to everyone that helped, particularly my husband Mike Chang, my mom Sharon Hehnly, and Allyn Pridmore.
Here’s several photos of everyone either at the Naples Central School, on a hike at Grime’s glen, or at dinner at Jon Betrus’s cabin.
The lab was rewarded their first R01 this past month and we couldn't be happier. We are super excited to tackle the role of membrane trafficking during division and how the centrosome may direct that process!
