For the last 5 months, I (that is, S. Kelly) have had the opportunity to spend the semester in Atlanta, GA for a research leave. This sabbatical is awarded to College of Wooster faculty every couple years to allow faculty to develop new research projects, make new professional contacts, learn new techniques, and just get completely immersed in their field of study for a couple months. It's an amazing opportunity that I am so excited to participate in. I've gotten the chance to meet and work with some amazing researchers at Emory University, attend (and give a talk at!) the 58th Annual Drosophila Meeting in San Diego, give a seminar for graduate students and postdocs at The University of Louisville, and work on a new paper that will hopefully get published soon. In addition, I had the chance to make it back to Wooster recently for graduation. It was so fun to see all the graduating seniors. Hopefully, I'll have some pictures to post soon of graduation.
In the mean time I do have some new pictures of Williams Hall of Life Sciences (i.e. the new science building).
