A salute and farewell to our current undergraduates.

Molly Austen and Allysa Abel have been members of NehrkeLab since 2011 and have spent the majority of the past two years, including summers, as undergraduate research fellows in the lab.

Ms. Abel recently defended her senior honors thesis and will be co-author on a manuscript that is nearly ready to be submitted. Ms. Austen finalized her independent research project by contributing significant new data to be included in Erik Allman’s next paper, and she will be acknowledged with authorship in the near future as the paper nears submission. I couldn’t be more proud of the two of them. I’m certain that as they find their way in the world, they will do NehrkeLab proud.
