Lab Dinner to Celebrate two Seniors Graduating, a summer fellowship, and two graduate students joining the lab!

by Heidi Hehnly in


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!

The fish room is almost ready!

The Hehnly lab has been expanding their repertoire from 2D and 3D mammalian tissue culture to also include zebrafish as a model. We started with the help of Jeff Amack’s lab at SUNY Upstate, but now have invested in our very own zebrafish facility with the help of Aquaneering and Syracuse University. Stay tuned for two fun studies in the works where we do cell biology in the zebrafish embryo.
