Special thanks to Graduate Coordinator Scott Dougan, who participated in the Athens-Savannah 2016 Double Century bike ride, riding a total of 210 miles over 2 days! Individuals in the department were given the opportunity to make pledges on his ride, and $685 dollars was raised to go to the Cellular Biology Graduate Student Association. The CBGSA plans to use the money they raised to buy graduation gowns and regalia that can be borrowed by program graduates who don’t wish to buy their own.

The winner of the 2016 Annual Graduate Program Research Photo Contest is Ashley Rasys, with this photograph of a mouse brain from a Pax6 BAC 293d08- E4-EGFP pA transgenic line.

Dr. Roberto Docampo, Professor of Cellular Biology and a Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar, has been named Distinguished Research Professor.
