Edgar defends his PhD at Duke

Edgar Medina gave a beautiful talk on cell cycle evolution and the transformation of Spizellomcyes punctatus, a soil chytrid. This PhD was a real tour de force, and a great way to close the Duke era!

His committee was Joe Heitman (Molecular Genetics & Microbiology), Danny Lew (Pharmacology & Cancer Biology), Rytas Vilgalys (Biology), Jason Stajich (Microbiology & Plant Pathology, UC Riverside) and Nicolas Buchler (the proud advisor).
