As Brian mentioned, Ms. A in Colorado attending the AACR annual meeting. In between seminars, networking sessions and marathon poster sessions (seriously. There's miles of posters) there is also a vendor fair featuring all the products you could ever want for your lab. One booth was a little different.
Ms A. is currently in Denver at this year's annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research. On Sunday she gave a talk at the "Future Leaders Symposium". I don't know how to put this, but she's kind of a big deal.
Her talk was "Tgfβ Signaling, Intestinal Homeostasis and Cancer: Novel Insights Through Stochastic Gene Alterations." You can see her picture here about halfway down the page.
Erin and I have been having a really good time together, getting outside, staying up late, going for walks, and eating cookies for dinner. When the weather is beautiful this parenting thing sure is easy. Let's hope the weather holds.

Erin loves Jojo. Watching videos of Jojo is one of her three favorite things in the world. Here they are:
- Drinking milk: with two hands outstretched making the ASL sign for milk: "Malk? Malk?"
- Being outside: at the front door, pointing to the handle emphatically: "Owtiiide? Owtiiide?"
- Seeing movies of Jojo: in front of the computer, patting the chair for me to sit down and show her videos of Jojo: "Sit? Jojo? Mo Jojo? Peeees?"
