Congratulations to Don Karl for receiving the Graduate Teaching Award at at the Department of Biological Sciences.The Crosby lab is extremely proud of him on this great achievement.
Congratulations to Curtis Foreman and Florida Doci for receiving the top two honours at the Department of Biological Sciences Honours Undergraduate Colloquium!
Curtis Foreman was the recipient of the Franklin-Holder Award for best presentation in Cell/Molecular Biology for his thesis work finding that “Acetolactate Synthase Regulatory Subunits, AIP1 and AIP3, Play Evolutionary Conserved Albeit Divergent Roles in Arabidopsis Development.”
Florida Doci was awarded second place for her work on the “Examination of Orthology Versus Functional Redundancy Among Selected Members of the Skp1-like gene family in Arabidopsis thaliana.”
The Crosby lab is proud of Curtis and Florida on their great success and would like to extend our congratulations to all the honours undergraduate students who presented their work at the colloquium!
