What have we been up to? (APR 2016)
There has been a huge turnover in our program these last few months, which is always a good thing! Most excitingly, Margarita has accepted her job offer from Penn State and will be starting her tenure-track faculty position there later on this year, congratulations Margarita! We’ve also had many of our undergraduate researchers either graduate or move on, so thanks also to Sam Freeze, Jennifer Fulp, Cameron Johnson, Omar Halawani, Jackie Fitzgerald, Joli Stavish, Allison Fowler, and Andrea Fitzgerald. Fortunately, we’ve been joined by a new grad student Joe Milone, an NCSU undergrad research Christopher Juberg, and a visiting undergrad from the University of Exeter (UK) Viki Blanchard, so welcome aboard! We’ve been keeping busy during this active field season collecting data on several projects, including the in vivo and in vitro rearing of queens. Deniz has been particularly busy in the Queen & Disease Clinic this year with samples from all over the country, so we hope that bodes well for increased traffic of samples going forward.
