Summer has been a busy time in the Mosca Lab! We started in June with three (!) summer students. Katie Helf joined us as a member of the Jefferson Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) from Rowan University. She worked to optimize new protocols for expansion microscopy to study active zone formation. Megan Furch joined us from Haverford College and spent 8 weeks working to define new genes involved in synaptic development in the olfactory system and to test some new tools we’ve built for synapse labeling. Finally, Ben Greer joined us as a high school student and cloned all the things! It was an amazing summer having these three scholars to join us.
