With the semester concluded, the lab is busy writing up manuscripts (5 in total) with the goal of summers end. Students have worked hard on their data and now its time to get their projects out. If that is not enough work for my "summer break" we have been invited to submit a full proposal to the National Science Foundation (NSF) for our research on the role of steroids in mediating aggression during food insecurity. As part of this proposal, we plan to develop some great teaching labs to enable us to integrate our research with undergraduate teaching at Rollins. We are also looking forward to submitting abstracts for upcoming meetings in New Orleans and Okinawa, Japan. A busy summer makes for a happy, fulfilled summer, just not for much of a break.
