Since our last post, there have been significant changes to the world. So first, we hope that everyone is staying safe and well! We are all hanging in there, and Erin couldn’t be more proud of how well the lab has adapted to the work-from-home transition. We have a weekly coffee hour just to check in and while we miss seeing everyone in person, we are glad to be doing our little part to slow the spread.
The work from home has allows for some exciting new opportunities and our awesome team members continue to shine!
In more good news, we are welcoming Dr. Ashley Henderson to the lab as a postdoc starting June 1st. Ashley just finished her PhD at West Virginia University with Dr. Jennifer Hawkins. Ashley brings a wealth of experience in sorghum, genetics and abiotic stress tolerance to the lab, and we are so excited for her to join the team. She will be working to expand our understanding of brace roots from maize to sorghum!
We look forward to seeing you all in the near future!
