Coaching program 2016-2017 wrap up

The WiSE coaching program, which pairs grad students and postdocs with STEM professionals, celebrated the end of the 2016-2017 program at the Rayback Collective. Over some delicious arepas and Middle Eastern food from Boulder food trucks, we heard about some wonderful connections that were made through the program. Thank you to all the mentees and mentors that participated in this year’s program!

New on the Lab and Field Blog

Check out the latest lab and field blog post by Sarah McAnulty, a doctoral candidate in the Nyholm lab in the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology, University of Connecticut.

Sarah studies the symbiotic relationship between the Hawaiian Bobtail squid and the glowing bacterium Vibrio fischeri. She analyzes the immune cells of the squid to figure out how these bacteria are tolerated.

Read her blog post “Judging a bacterium by its cover: immune cell-symbiont communication in the Hawaiian Bobtail squid/Vibrio fischeri symbiosis” by clicking here.
