Bodega lab turns 50
Marine biology Ph.D. student Grace Ha answers questions during an open lab tour at UC Davis’ Bodega Marine Laboratory earlier this month, during the lab’s 50th anniversary celebration. The Sept. 16-17 festivities includes an alumni reunion that welcomed hundreds of former students, staff and donors since the 1960s. They were hosted by more than 100 resident BML faculty, graduate students and staff representing current research activities. Seven speakers representing different decades spoke on how BML influenced their lives. The repeating theme was how their BML experience was inspiring and challenging in a close-knit family setting, and where young aspirants were transformed into budding and accomplished scientists. Matt Whalen, BML graduate student, summed up the reunion best: “The 50th anniversary celebration was an invigorating and reaffirming coalescence of BML’s past and present. It was a huge family reunion, and seeing the march through time all the way from BML’s foundation to the most recent cohort of summer students gives me confidence that the lab will remain an exemplar of marine science research and training for a very long time.”
