Thesis Defense

Roles for Six6 and Bmal in circadian biology and reproduction.

Friday, December 2nd, 2011
4:00 PM
Leichtag 107

Committee in charge:
Pamela L. Mellon, Chair
Nicolas S. Spitzer, Co-Chair
Mark A. Lawson
Cornelis Murre
Satchidananda Panda
David K. Welsh

As I furiously write up two research papers and a dissertation, I wanted to give you some information on my thesis defense. For those of you who will benefit from it, here is a map:

The yellow star is the Leichtag building, and room 107 is the main lecture room on the first floor adjacent to the huge lobby. Parking can be found at the blue stars, with payment for said parking available at the red stars.

The talk will last for an hour or so, with time afterwards for questions from the audience and my committee, followed by a committee-only discussion.

If my committee deems my work sufficiently meritorious, all are welcome to a post-defense happy hour following all of this.

Mouse Project

I knew consciously that mouse projects would be time consuming. But actually laying down all the breeding schema on an excel sheet has me slightly discouraged at the time from ordering mice, to getting fertility data from F3.

I am really excited about the project, though. Maybe that’s why I’m eager to get things moving along quickly, and am more anxious about the slowness of mouse projects in general.
