Congratulations to Sam on his Poster

Congratulations to Sam for receiving an honorable mention in the highly competitive poster presentation category at the at the 2017 Canadian Society of Plant Biologists (CSPB) meeting, held this summer here at UBC, for his poster presentation "Probing Cannabis sativa L. Glandular Trichome Cell Structure during Resin Production."

The Samuels lab made a good showing, with many members attending, presenting posters and giving oral presentations. It was amazing to get to see the work being done by so many excellent Canadian researchers.

Saying Hello and Saying Goodbye

Congratulations to Eva Chou on her successful defence of her Master's thesis in December! Through hard work and dedication she showed us all how it's done! It will be so sad to lose her presence in the lab.

But we must move on, and welcome new PhD student Mendel Perkins, who joins us from the Samuel Lab (not the Samuels Lab!) at the University of Calgary. I'm sure we'll be seeing more of Mendel as he gets started on his project in the lab.
