Congratulations to Dr. Subramanian!

I am delighted to be able to start this blog on such a positive note! This morning I got to witness the PhD dissertation defense of fellow (former) grad student Srikanth Subramanian on “Positive cross-talk between ecdysone and insulin signaling in insect growth”. He did a fantastic job and demonstrated not only a thorough knowledge of his research, but also a great sense of humor – which will be missed in his lab and the department!

I couldn’t help but envy the apparent ease with which he recited the signaling pathways and inhibitors involved in the growth of imaginal discs of the tobacco hornworm… 🙂 You have made us all very proud!
