Alternatively, the “cascading mentorship” model describes the members of lab- oratories or research groups receiving mentorship from more se- nior laboratory members and providing it to more junior members (i.e., PIs mentor postdocs, postdocs mentor senior graduate stu- dents, senior students mentor junior students, etc.). Here we show that PIs’ laboratory and mentoring activities do not significantly predict...

Paula Montero Llopis and Rebecca Senft (First Session) Tim Ross-Elliott and Ryan Stephansky

Light Microscopy is currently a widespread tool for scientific discovery. Advances in this field including the development of brighter and better dyes and fluorescent proteins and techniques that go beyond the optical resolution limit have shaped the way scientist do science. Furthermore, the inherent quantitative nature of light microscopy makes it a powerful tool to solve biological problems in both live and fixed samples and really goes beyond a pretty picture....
