Rebecca LaVictoire has just joined the lab as a research tech. Rebecca spent the past several months in the jungle studying the behavior of rhesus macaques. Here she’s thinking “hmmm, maybe I’ve made a big mistake”. Lets hope not. Welcome Rebecca!
Régis has just been awarded a grant from the National Cancer Institute for his research on aneuploidy. Congrats!!
