Our past.


A special thank you to Marie Davidson. Marie was our lab manager and administrative director for 14 years. Marie and I first met just a couple of months after I started as an Assistant Professor in November of 2003. For most of our history we were also doing wet lab experiments in addition to mathematical and computational modeling. Running a wet lab takes a tremendous amount of work and coordination. It is safe to say that none of us, the students or myself, would have survived without Marie. And I will forever be grateful for her professionalism, commitment, and friendship. While she will be tremendously missed by all of us, we wish her nothing but the very best in her 'semi-retirement' and entrepreneurial pursuits. G.S.
