It's hard to believe we're almost into March already! Between bench work, mentoring students, writing chores, peer review assignments, and a little teaching, January and February have just flown by.
We're happy to welcome Nathan Liang into the group. Nathan is a TMM rotation student, who is also planning to stay on for the summer and into his honours project next fall. He will be working on various aspects of endogenous mutagenesis. Welcome aboard!
We're also happy to learn that Kassidy and Salma will be moving on to their first choices for post-baccalaureate education. Kassidy has been accepted to the uOttawa law program (and awaiting word from other programs in Ontario), while Salma has been accepted to the chemistry graduate program. Both have made important contributions to our ongoing research. As group leader, I always encourage students to pursue what they're most enthusiastic about, and I'm very glad Kassidy and Salma have found great situations for the next steps in their respective career paths.
