Some of the lab went to Cal State Northridge yesterday to attend the annual meeting of the Southern California Academy of Sciences and the Southern California Society of Parasitologists. Becky and Adrienne gave talks dealing with various aspects of host behavior and parasites, and Ryan chaired the Parasitology sessions. Good times.
