A graduate student Elaina Breznau, a member of the Miller Lab, was recently awarded a Journal of Cell Science Travelling Fellowship.

She will use the award to travel to Rebecca Heald’s Lab at the University of California, Berkeley (Dr. Heald was a speaker in the MCDB Seminar Series this past fall) to gain expertise in making and working with Xenopus egg extracts. This trip will facilitate collaboration between the Miller and Heald labs to pursue projects on cytokinesis regulation using biochemically reconstituted Xenopus egg extract systems. 

Congratulations, Elaina!
