Congratulations to Susanna for successfully defending her Biology Capstone Project Proposal!
Its Spooky Season in the Arnold Lab and what better way to celebrate than with Planarian Pumpkin Carving!
Alexus successfully defends her Biology Capstone Project Proposal. Excellent job!
Wrapping up our summer with the first ever Arnold Lab "Appalachianarian Hunt." Elizabeth, Reagan, and Alexus collected a huge cache of local planarian species. It was great to share this experience of seeing planaria in their natural habitat.
Susanna presents her SURE project at the Summer Undergrad Research Symposium. Great job!
Wild PLANARIA appeared! UNDERGRAD RESEARCHER used CUT! It's super effective! Susanna, Alexus, and Reagan hard at work amputating planaria for regeneration experiments.
Alexus imaging live planaria. With bilateral symmetry, flatworms make it easy to get their good side.
Alexus and Ian presenting their work at the 2023 WVU Undergrad Spring Symposium. Great job!
Our second lab meeting! Something looks familiar about that clock..... I know! That is a cross section of a planarian pharynx by the talented Mol Mir!
Our first lab meeting! Can you spot the print of Planaria by M.C. Escher, 1959?
