Divya Shiroor (Adler lab grad student) will be the keynote speaker at DBNY (Developmental Biology New York) on November 16 at Ithaca College. DBNY is the first conference focused on undergraduate research in upstate New York and is organized by Ithaca College Biology faculty Te-Wen Lo and Ian Woods. Hopefully this will be the first of many conferences held at IC.

We have had a great time teaching in the MBL Neurobiology course! Graduate student Divya Shiroor TA'ed and oversaw an exciting project dissecting feeding behavior as part of the Functional Genomics section of this intensive course for training graduate students and postdocs from all over the world. This picture shows "team planaria" in action.

Big week! Divya Shiroor's exciting paper describing a new injury-induced stem cell behavior (sneak peek, stem cells do more than just proliferate in response to injury) is available as a preprint! This is a big moment for the lab too, since it's our first preprint!
Also, Carrie was awarded a grant from the President's Council for Cornell Women! Thank you very much for your support of our work.
