Congratulations to Theresa on a successful Master’s Thesis Defense!

This morning via zoom, Theresa presented her thesis, Regulation of the Intracellular Pathogen Response by pals Gene Pairs in C. elegans. Because of the international benefit of the platform, her audience included not only her thesis committee and current lab mates, but also former lab members joining from three continents and six countries (shown above). Congratulations to Theresa for a successful defense on the wonderful work she’s done while with us, and we wish her the best as she pursues an MD at the University of Arizona! Below, we are seen celebrating the good news via zoom meeting.
