Alaina successfully defended her thesis "Mechanisms regulating cytokinetic contractile ring formation and anchoring Schizosaccharomyces pombe."   We celebrated all of Alaina's contributions to the lab and scientific community including mentorship of rotation students (e.g. Chloe) and undergraduates (e.g. Hannah), quantitative microscopy techniques that she learned at Woods Hole, and the widespread adaptation of the mNeonGreen fluorophore by our lab and the fission yeast community. 

Congratulations, Dr. McDonald!
