Summer student Luul presents her work at the VSSA Symposium

Luul Aden has spent the last 8 weeks working in the Gould lab and today she presented her work at the VSSA 15th Annual Student Research Symposium.    After this summer, Luul will start her junior year at Vanderbilt as a Molecular Biology major. In the future, Luul hopes to go to medical school and maybe even continue doing research that helps to advance medicine.  Good luck, Luul!  Be sure to stop by the lab and say hello! 

Pombe 2017 meeting was a success!

May 27, 2017

Kathy, Alaina, and MariaSanta journeyed to Banff, Canada for the 9th International Fission Yeast Meeting.  Kathy helped kick off the conference with a keynote address, "Organizing the Split: Nanoscale Architecture of the Cell Division Machinery." After that first evening, our days were filled with excellent lectures in good company at an extremely lovely locale.  And when we weren't in the seminar rooms, we were outside enjoying the Canadian Rocky Mountains and local wildlife.

Adventures at GRC, Cytoskeleton Meeting

October 14, 2016

Chloe, Alaina, and Kathy had a great experience at the Gordon Research Conference on Plant and Microbial Cytoskeletons.  When not occupied hearing cutting-edge science and getting to know other labs, they found some time to enjoy beautiful Andover, NH!
