We've had a number of individual successes in the lab to celebrate over the last few months. First of all, 2nd-year Ph.D. student Logan Combee was advanced to candidacy after passing his candidacy exam. Undergraduate Isaac Falk won a prestigious Harrison Award to fund his research. Finally, 3rd-year Ph.D. candidate Will Shuler won first place in the department's poster session for 3rd-year students. Congratulations to everyone.
