Things are progressing in the laboratory! The formalin samples were shipped a few weeks ago, boxes have started appearing seemingly from nowhere and the chilled samples will be shipped over to Maine within the week. The container for all the rest of the lab arrives in just 3 weeks, time is certainly flying by. I'll update with pictures of the move when it comes!
Updates to the Alaskan Red Tree coral reproduction project has been posted!

Today Laura, Ryan, Louise, Christian and I packed all the histology samples ready for their long haul to Maine. It is a poignant moment, these samples will be the first shipment to land in Maine, ready for the big move. The container is booked for the first week of November, so all the rest of the lab is going to leave a good 5 weeks before I will actually be leaving the island. Up until now it hasn't seemed real, but time flies and soon the Waller lab will be headed to the cold East. Exciting to be moving somewhere new, adventures are always fun and this certainly will be an adventure, but also sad to be leaving Hawaii and all the students we've had through the lab. It's been a great group and i'll miss everyone who's been working here.
Lots more packing to go though, so better get moving in that direction!
