Congratulations to lab alums Abigail Gutierrez (BC 2020) and Chelsea Sinclair (BC 2021) who returned to campus today for a much-delayed, long-overdue in person graduation ceremony! It was so wonderful to see them and FINALLY be able to celebrate their accomplishments in person.
Welcome back to Barnard, Abby!
Congratulations to Pischedda Lab Alum Abigail Gutierrez, who has been hired as a Laboratory Specialist by the Barnard Biology Department! Abby will be part of our Introductory Biology team, teaching intro bio labs, discussions, and helping with the BIOL 1500-level lecture series. We're so happy to have her back!
ConGRADulations to Abby & Ana-Maria!
Congrats to Abigail Gutierrez and Ana-Maria Rodriguez Cuadrado on their graduation as part of the Barnard Class of 2020!
Abby earned her BA in Biology, and Ana-Maria earned her BA in Biology with an Anthropology minor. We can't wait until we can celebrate with them in person!
Congratulations to Ana-Maria and Abby for presenting their Guided Research & Seminar projects at the 2020 Biology Research Symposium. This year's Symposium was held over Zoom, where Ana-Maria and Abby were able to present their 1-minute oral abstracts and posters to the Barnard community!
Congratulations to Abigail Gutierrez who was awarded the Biology Department's Constance von Wahl Prize at the Barnard Honors Assembly over Zoom tonight! This prize is awarded to a graduating senior with high qualities of character and commitment to the department and her fellow students. Yay Abby!
COVID-19 might have moved us all off campus and moved our flies into my garage, but the Pischedda Lab is still meeting for semi-regular lab meetings! This week's agenda: watching Abby and Ana-Maria practice a run-through of their poster presentations for the upcoming Biology Symposium, and getting an updated lab photo (even if it needed to be via Zoom!)
The official end of SRI
The lab went out for lunch to celebrating the end of SRI: 10 weeks that have been filled with successes, failures, so much science, and so many flies!
