Summer 2019 Had a blast visiting the east coast for a few weeks this summer! Attended the SSE conference in Providence, RI and the ASM conference in Washington, D.C. It was great catching up with friends and hearing some amazing science! May 2019 Many thanks to IB, the MVZ, and the Philomathia Center for their graduate student support. I have recently been awarded a Wilhem L.F. Marten's Fund, a Junea W. Kelly Fellowship, an IB Summer Research Grant, and a Philomathia Fellowship for the upcoming year. Thank you so much! January 2019 Enjoyed sunny and warm Tampa, Florida for the annual SICB meeting! October 2018 Had a blast collaborating with Katya Mack on our recent Genome Research paper! We identified cis-eQTL underlying clinal adaptation in house mice. May 2018 I am thrilled to have received a GIAR from the American Society of Mammalogists! This small grant will help fund my dissertation project on environmental adaptation in deer mice and house mice. Thank you, ASM! March 2018 Very fortunate to have had the opportunity to contribute to JEB's Special Issue on "The Biology of Fat". Matt Andrews and I wrote a review on brown adipose tissue in mammalian hibernators. And thanks to Kathryn Knight for the nice synopsis of our work! January 2018 The Nachman lab is in incredibly fortunate to have Mohamed Noor visiting us while on sabbatical. I've had an absolute pleasure hanging out with Mohamed over the past few months, talking science and enjoying Bay Area cuisine. Mohamed and I collaborated on a small project, highlighting a recent article on the role of lethal alleles in natural populations. Check out our Trends in Genetics Spotlight here!
