It’s a new school year, and that means new members have joined the Ishaq Lab team – primarily undergraduates in Animal and Veterinary Sciences who are participating in research in fulfillment of their Capstone Experience senior projects. Over the next few months, we’ll be sharing more details about our new team members and their projects.
While UMaine is back on campus, not all of our students are local, so we had a hybrid meeting of in-person and Zoom attendees. We have members at Husson University in Bangor, Maine; Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts; and Stony Brook University in Stony Brook, New York!
We use collaborative file sharing such as Google Drive, virtual meeting spaces like Zoom, and messaging platforms such as Slack for a few projects to facilitate our research and keep track of information. To help us connect more easily, and especially to help get everyone in my office on screen together, we’ll be adding more virtual conferencing equipment, too.
