So much pride!

The Eublephosphere is overflowing with pride!  Kathy and Noeline successfully defended their theses, and are now officially Masters of Science!  Sadly, our tears of pride are mixed with melancholy as our mighty Moe is moving to T.O.  Not to worry - she has promised to keep us in her thoughts, and her experiments, and we look forward to many future collaborations.  Go-Moe-Go!  As for Katrusia, buckle-up because the future PhK starts her PhD in the OVC next week.  Yahoo!

EB 2015 was lovin' the M(a)cd/Donalds!

The poster by undergraduates Alaina and Rebecca was a huge success at Experimental Biology 2015.  Kudos to both for demonstrating that neural stem/progenitor cells are not just a SVZ-thing.  #prideintheEublephosphere
