Too much happened this summer that we needed to celebrate. We held the five week ABCD Workshop, which was a roaring success. Dr. Theresa Cheng defended her dissertation on July 30, and is moving to Boston to begin her post-doc in Dr. Erin Dunn’s lab! Dr. Karlena Ochoa defended her disseration on August 16th, and is moving to Santa Ana to begin her post-doc at the University California Irvine STEM Learning lab! To celebrate this momentous summer, those of us who were in town took a walk around the river path from the Rose Garden to the Whiteaker Community Gardens. I couldn’t be more proud to work with these humans. Lab-Whit-Gardens Lab-Rose-Garden
