Good morning FHL Friends and Family,
Time continues to roll by, and here it is June 1st already. Thus begins our busy summer season, and all of the FHL staff has been working hard to get our beautiful campus ready for the summer researchers and students who are coming soon. Our spring courses went exceptionally well, and those students are finishing their finals and papers before they move on.
We were very sad to lose a long-time FHL researcher and Professor of Biology, Garrett Odell, this May after a long illness. Garry was the Director of the NIH Center for Cell Dynamics, located at FHL from 2002-2010, which pioneered modeling of cell and developmental processes. Garry’s influence can be seen in the many faculty, students and postdocs that worked with him, and he is sadly missed by all who knew him.
