Olivia Eliopoulos wins GSA Travel Award!

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!)
New semester, new lab members!
This semester the Pischedda Lab added 3 new members to our group! Welcome to the team, Holly, Mariel and Olivia!
Also, for anyone wondering how we get such great photos of our lab members, here is our unofficial lab photographer, Ana-Maria, making the magic happen!
