Carnegie Evening

This yearly event was held at Carnegie Institution's headquarters in Washington, DC, on May 6th. The celebration started with a talk by Dr Marnie Halpern, Department of Embryology, regarding her research on left-brain assymmetry -- where in the larval brain it resided and for what purpose. Two Service to Science Awardees were introduced:  Michael Acierno. IT/IS manager at DTM, and Thomas McDonaugh,  Facility Manager at the Department of Embryology. A recepion for the many guests followed. For more photos, please follow this link.

The following were there from GL and DTM (from left): Helen Venzon, Caroline Jonsson, Javier Montoya, Atsushi Kyono, a friend, Daniella Power, Susana Mysen.


Gone Fishing
