RNA Meeting Part 2: The Presentations

Last time we checked in, we showed you some lovely pictures of Banff, where the RNA meeting was held. Today we present our presentations. And some group shots.

Left to right: Chewie, Nick, a telescope, Sander, Kara, Ellie, and Franziska.

Franziska presented her poster on the second day of the meeting, all by herself. That allowed the rest of us to scope out the competition, as well as play lookout for any grizzly bears that might want to find out what her project is.

It was SO hot in those poster rooms, and SO loud that we were sweating and shouting. So it took lots of water to keep us happy. And we drank every one of these.

Nick was the first visitor to my poster, so I very dilligently explained my thought processes and the many reasons I chose that specific blue for the backdrop of my poster.

Chewie used a similar blue, and was very proud of it.

Kara also used that blue. There seems to be a trend emerging here.

Ellie (J. Steitz lab) also chose blue. Very interesting.

After talking so much science at the poster sessions, we were exhausted!

Kara found an alternate use for her poster.

Back to front: Erica, Chewie, Kara, and Franziska.

You must be on the edge of your seat, waiting for part 3. And let me tell you, it's a doozy!
