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.
