Graduate student Michaiah Leal completed her PhD this spring and gave an excellent exit seminar via Zoom last week. In her five years in the lab Michaiah has led four studies on the physiological differences between triploid and diploid white sturgeon. During that time she developed new laboratory protocols for studying cellular stress, mentored undergraduates and fellow graduate students, collaborated on additional sturgeon projects, taught numerous classes as a teaching assistant, and developed an impressive publication record. Michaiah will be missed in the lab, but we wish the best of luck to the future Professor Leal. Congratulations Michaiah!
