First of all congratulations to Courtney Hanna who completed her PhD late last spring and moved on to an exciting postdoctoral fellowship at the Babraham Institute in Cambridge, England. Also to John Blair who completed his Masters last summer and moved on to my former Alma Mater (UC Berkeley) and is now enjoying all the great food and exciting life there (when he finds time to escape the lab that is!). We miss them both! Likewise, Kirsten Hogg has just completed her postdoctoral fellowship here and is moving down under to another postdoctoral position in Melbourne! Time goes by so fast..sigh.
We do have two new graduate student who have joined the lab in this last year: Sam Wilson and Olivia de Goede. They have big shoes to fill but have started off with good strides.
