The conference brought together over 1500 researchers from around the world who all study C. elegans, a microscopic round worm. The students, Zoe Tesone (UC 2021), Caprice Eisele (UC 2020), and Andrew Belville (UC 2021), presented their research at a scientific poster session and attended talks on all types of research with this worm. The students also met a former Ursinus student and Lyczak lab member, Kate Power (UC class of 2015). Kate performed honors research in the Lyczak laboratory while at Ursinus and is currently a PhD student at Rutgers University where she continues to study C. elegans.
