News from the Laboratory

Susan traveled to North Carolina State University to present a seminar entitled: Evolution of a model system: The adaptive radiation of threespine stickleback that was hosted by the W.M. Keck Center for Behavioral Biology.  She had the opportunity to meet the very diverse and active group of faculty and students who comprise this group and had a wonderful visit.  Post-doctoral fellow Gissella Vasquez wrote a wonderful summary of the presentation and of Susan’s career in The Signala monthly newsletter for the W.M. Keck Center for Behavioral Biology.

Susan becomes one of 18 action editors for Animal Behaviour, and is looking forward to this new editorial challenge. Action editors handle manuscripts for review.  The journal is published by Elsevier for the Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour and the Animal Behavior Society.  It was first published in the year Susan was born (which makes it way old and, of course, respectable …)

Shlomit Klopman becomes a Ph.D. student in the laboratory and FIVE long-term undergrads become fifth-year master’s students in our laboratory! These are Lauren Ackein, Rachel Chock, Katherine O’Brien, Jignasha Rana, and Karyn Robert. Umpteen undergraduates also become active in the laboratory and soon will be featured here.
