Thanks to everyone who attended the Science in Social Media seminar presented by Lindsey Diamond, Director of Communication for BioFrontiers. Many attendees asked for the slides, and Dr. Diamond was kind enough to share her presentation with us in PDF form! Take a look and start putting your scientific social media skills to use!
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!

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.
