Surette lab places in 3rd for the annual Biochem pumpkin carving contest and Pat Schenck won for Best Individual costume for the 3rd year in a row (you’ll have to guess his pun costume)! Way to go guys!
PhD candidates Josie and Michelle were both awarded prizes at the Canadian Society of Microbiologists Annual Conference in Toronto. Josie won the very impressive Canadian Science Publishing Student Symposium Award For Top Student Oral Presentation and Michelle received a Poster Award, which was a new prize given to the top 12 posters at the meeting.
Congratulations to Josie and Michelle for being recognized for their great work!
