Chris visited the Marine Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole, MA in May to teach in the Frontiers in Reproduction (FIR) course. Pictured in the center, across from Eel Pond, is the Swope Dormitory where faculty and students live and eat during the course.

Another use for Tygon tubing - in a fine art sculpture (?) in the main lobby of the Hilton Miami Downtown, site of the XXIVth North American Testis Workshop. Chris was an invited speaker, and gave a talk entitled "Differential requirements for the mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR) and mTORC1 component Raptor in spermatogonial development in the mouse". Program chair Leslie Heckert (University of Kansas Medical Center) and vice-chair Vassillios Papadopoulos (USC School of Pharmacy) organized a great meeting!

Watching the 2016 NCAA Men's Basketball National Championship Game (UNC v. Villanova) in New Orleans at the American Society of Andrology Meeting. Our viewing party includes, from L-R: Tony De Falco (University of Cincinnati), John McCarrey (University of Texas at San Antonio), Summer Goodson, Deborah O'Brien (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill), Mitch Eddy (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences), and Stuart Moss (NIH/NICHD). Not shown is Brian Hermann (University of Texas at San Antonio), the Villanova grad, who was too nervous about the game to be in the picture!

Chris was a speaker at the 2015 Reseau Quebecois en Reproduction (RQR) Symposium in Montreal, Quebec. Shown is Makoto Nagano (McGill University) playing a very small guitar (also called a ukulele). Not shown is Bruce Murphy (University of Montreal), who evidently didn't want to be seen playing a ukulele!? A wonderful trip with a fantastic host (thanks Bruce!).
