Erica A. Champion successfully defended her thesis Friday July 18th, 2008. Attended by an audience of near 100 persons, Erica showcased her Utp6 protein with a tip of her half-a-tetratricopeptide repeat (HAT). After stunning her committee with her results and impeccable presentation skills, Erica, her parents, the lab, and her friends enjoyed some potent potables with noted notables, including her former advisers Chandler Fulton and Elaine Lai, pictured below.
We're all proud of you, Erica!
(and we hope you'll come back often to help us with the crosswords and oreo consumption)
