Mandy Gibson has joined the Morran Lab as our first postdoctoral fellow! She recently completed her PhD in Curt Lively’s lab at Indiana University. Mandy is now a part of Emory’s FIRST program (Fellowships in Research and Science Teaching). Check out her page to learn more about her research interests.

Congratulations to Kim Hoang in receiving the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship!
She plans to study how mutualisms between two organisms become established- using worms!
We had a great time connecting with our fellow Atlantans and talking science in Centennial Olympic Park during the Atlanta Science Festival. Looking forward to next year!
