We've had a bunch of new lab members join since our last update!
First, Grant Sherrill joined the Elting Lab last summer. An NCSU undergraduate physics major, he's working on a project to examine force in S. pombe mitotic spindles.
Finally, Sophia Webster joined the group last fall. She's bravely agreed to do a joint postdoc with 4 PIs (in addition to Mary, the project is mentored by Julio Belmonte, Caroline Laplante, and Greg Reeves), connected to the Quantitative and Computational Developmental Biology cluster at NCSU. Her project involves examining how mechanics help pattern the developing Drosophila embryo.
