Lab graduates move on

Three students that made significant contributions to the lab have graduated in the past two years and are starting exciting careers.  Jackie Skiba graduated from Ashland University in 201o not certain on what direction she wanted to take, but recently landed a great job as a quality control technician in the coffee division of Smuckers where she will be able to combine her love of coffee and science.  Besides tasting lots of coffee, she will be using analytical chemistry to quantify the quality of different brews.

Amy Drossman has moved to Chicago to start the Doctor of Optometry program at the Illinois College of Optometry.  After three years of working with larval zebrafish eyes she will need to adjust to a different scale.

And Phillip Wages will be starting his PhD studies this week in the Biomedical and Biological Sciences Program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he also took part in a summer research internship in 2009.

All three of these students contributed to projects that will likely be published in the next year or so.  Check back for updates, and for introduction of new lab members.
