The Ungar Lab not only started the semester strong, but we are finishing the 2015-2016 school year strong as well. Undergraduates and graduate students in the lab presented their research at the American Association of Physical Anthropology (see pictures below), and two of our graduate students were chosen to participate in the AAPA COD WIN Professionalization Workshop for Female Graduate Students. They got to enjoy a panel about career options, small group mentoring, and grant/publishing mentoring. The Ungar Lab also participated in the wildly successful Anthropology Open Lab night! Everyone from our researchers to our lab techs were on hand to answer questions about research and the lab. Also, a recently published Plos One article using data gathered in the Ungar Lab was featured on Science Daily.
And if that wasn’t enough…two of our Ph.D. students are now Ph.D CANDIDATES!! Congratulations Jenny and Sarah!
The semester may be ending, but the lab will be as busy as ever this summer with visiting researchers and scanning, scanning, and probably some more scanning. Check back in this Fall for more updates.
