We gathered for a picnic in beautiful North Berkeley to celebrate Matt’s time in the lab. We wish Matt the best in his new adventure and look forward to hearing about his lab’s accomplishments!
Cheers to Matt!
Matt catches up with his graduate school advisor, Tom Pollard, who happens to be one of our newest lab members.
Dr. Drubin’s video talk, Actin Dynamics and Endocytosis in Yeast and Mammalian Cells, is now available on iBiology.org: Link to Parts 1-4
