This week in lab awesomeness!

This week the lab will be traveling to the Experimental Biology meeting in Chicago and we have a lot to celebrate (pics forthcoming)!!

Undergraduate student Matt won a Bruce abstract award and will receive his award at the meeting. Shilpa, another undergraduate and founding member of the lab, has been accepted into Physician Assistant’s school. She’ll be leaving Iowa City to start this new adventure right after graduation. We are so proud of our research team members’ accomplishments!

Also this week, renowned physiologist and all-around great guy David Poole visited from Kansas State University. He gave the 25th annual Louis Alley Lecture in the Department of Health and Human Physiology titled “Muscle Vascular O2 Transport: Myths and Mechanisms.” After his fantastic seminar, he joined the lab and Dr. Amy Sindler’s lab to share his science wisdom. Thanks for coming to Iowa, Dr. Poole!
