Springing into Spring: A Season of Growth for PCBG

Spring has sprung, and with it, there has been tremendous growth both in the natural world and within our lab at PCBG. Let’s recap some of the highlights of the season so far.

We started off by celebrating birthdays for Asmita, Sadia and Charly. We honored our lab members and indulged our sweet tooth. Here’s to another year of friendship, science, and savory treats!

One of the major events on our calendar was the 32nd Annual Triangle Consortium for Reproductive Biology (TCRB) conference at NC State University, where we were in the company of fellow researchers and colleagues from around the triangle area and beyond. It was a pleasure to absorb enlightening presentations on emerging research in the field. Among the regional speakers, our own PI, Charly, shared insights on placenta-specific autophagy, while two of our postbaccs, Maira and Erixberto, showcased their work through a poster presentation. Kudos to these members of our lab for their active engagement and commitment to advancing science at TCRB!

Taking a break from lab, we stepped outside to experience the solar eclipse. We experimented with creative ways to witness spectacle without the need for eclipse gear.

Lastly, we want to congratulate Erixberto for his participation in the annual Communication Challenge for NIEHS Postbaccalaureate Fellows. He proudly represented PCBG and shed light into some of the research we do in our lab.

As the season unfolds, PCBG continues to blossom and we look forward to what the future has in store. Stay tuned for more updates!
