Good work Will!

On April 30th, 2016 Will Gribbin successfully presented the results of his summer research project in the MacAlister lab. Will came to us from Kalamazoo College for the summer of 2015 to conduct research for his Senior Individualized Project, the capstone of his biology degree. He studied the dynamics of cell wall regeneration following enzymatic digestion of Physcomitrella filament cells, and gave a great and engaging final presentation at Kalamazoo!
