As part of a new lab tradition started last spring, we got together for this season’s picnic and hike in the beautiful Occoneechee Mountain State Natural Area. Here are some pictures of the event!
With heavy hearts, the lab says goodbye to Bri Edwards, our lovely and glamorous manager superhero. She’s headed to new and exciting adventures in her new position at NC State University. We’ll miss you badly!
The lab welcomes our new postdoc coming right from Florida, Mariano Alvarez. You can find more info about him here.
Are you ready to have fun?
Even when it’s summer break for the students, the research never halts! The lab kept busy this summer, too, with two outstanding recruits from the NC Project SEED and the Biological Sciences Undergraduate Research Fellowship (B-SURF) summer programs: Ben Samson & Melissa Horowitz. After 8-weeks of intensive work on their research projects, they gave a triumphant presentation of their results to the public! The lab thoroughly enjoyed having such conscientious students take part in the research.
Because the photos were too spectacular to not share… HUGE thanks to Gaby for capturing this beautiful day!!
George Schieder, one of our undergraduate superstars, presented the findings of his honors thesis research in Friday’s Distinction in Biology Poster Symposium. George has been a dedicated mentee and research assistant of Lindsay Leverett’s for many years so it is bittersweet to see him graduate and leave us next semester…nevertheless, we wish him the best in his future endeavors in dental school! We’ll miss you George!!
