A subset of the Noriega and DeGennaro labs celebrates Joshua and welcomes him to FIU.
My lab threw a surprise party for me (and it wasn't even my birthday). It has been one of the proudest days of my lab life. I am so lucky to have found these wonderful people to work with.
Today we completely rearranged the lab and assembled new furniture to make room for two incoming grad students, a postdoc, and an undergraduate student. I am so thankful for the wonderful group of students I have.
Kevin and Liz watch as the female mosquitoes engorge.
Sheyla Gonzalez and John Castillo hard at work. Will Sheyla find the double mutant she's been looking for? Will John identify a new mutant?
Sheyla Gonzalez received her degree from FIU today. I was so honored to celebrate with her family.
Congrats to Elina!
