Twenty four undergraduate UTM biology students participated at Ontario Biology Day (OBD) this weekend. Our students did a great job showcasing their research at this undergraduate conference! Anneka Hafeez received an award for best interdisciplinary biology presentation based on her work on developmental origin of PM4 neutrons in the optic lobe of Drosophila in Dr. Erclik’s lab. Monika Kania and Vikram Paul received an award for the best overall science education presentation for their work on inquiry-based labs for teaching plant science with Dr. Steven Chatfield.

Congratulations to Tammy Duong!

Celina Baines, a doctoral student in Shannon McCauley's lab, was awarded a Godfrey Hewitt Mobility Award from the European Society for Evolutionary Biology. The award will help fund her in an exchange where she will be spending time in the lab of Justin Travis at the University of Aberdeen next year, developing models of the evolution of condition dependent dispersal.
