Matthew and Nicole attended the annual Association for Research in Otolaryngology (ARO) Midwinter Meeting in San Jose, CA. Nicole showed a poster about her work figuring out how activity drives changes in auditory nerve synapses.  Great job, Nicole!

Meeting up with old friends and making new friends along the way. Picture here with previous lab members Tenzin Ngodup and Gabriel Si.

Matthew gave a talk to the Department of Otolaryngology and the Virginia Merrill Bloedel Hearing Research Center at the University of Washington.  The weather was gloomy, but the place was full of vitality and energy.  He met with lots of people, and caught up with several old acquaintances.  All were doing really interesting work.  It was a great visit.

The lab got together at the Xu-Friedman house to mark Victoria's departure.  She goes off to Albany for a Master's program in Forensics.  Her going-away gift was her favorite genotyping result, rendered in blanket form by Sophie X-F.  We hope this will be a good memento.  And so practical too!  Best of luck to Victoria in her new endeavors!

Matthew made his annual pilgrimage to the Ion Channels course at Cold Spring Harbor.  The lecture and lab went very well this year, although the M&M's demonstration was marred by one student's finding a half a quantum, which seems illegal.  It is always fun to share in the intense and energetic atmosphere.  Matthew owes this opportunity to Stephan Brenowitz, who invited him to take part many years ago.  Matthew also found time to catch up with Connor Cook, who is attending NYITCOM nearby.

Matthew, Nicole, and Maggie attended the IHLC in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario.  The program committee, spear-headed by Steve Lomber, put together a terrific group of talks and posters, with really interesting and varied perspectives.  Matthew managed to sneak in a rather cellular talk about the effects of noise on synapses, and Nicole presented a poster of her work.  The venue was really beautiful, and commuting each day past blooming cherry orchards made for a memorable week.

Matthew was invited by Hai Huang to give a talk to the Department of Cell and Molecular Biology at Tulane.  It was great to meet with the faculty there, and to enjoy the idyllic weather.
