Photo of the Week


While some of the MBL courses have ended and students have re-dispersed, with promises to stay in touch, the Brown/MBL graduate students are looking forward to the academic year in Woods Hole. This photo of Brown/MBL student Anupriya (Priya) Dutta, who is pouring a gel in a Bay Paul Center lab at sunset, captures the long, light-filled days of August when the excitement of fall is still around the corner. Fellow Brown/MBL student Alex Valm took the photo of Dutta, who is working with MBL faculty member David Mark Welch on genome evolution of bdelloid rotifers.

The Neurobiology course took its annual boat trip to Devil’s Foot Island on July 8, with “Captain” Joe DiGiorgis of Providence College and “First Mate” Tom Reese of the National Institutes of Health charting the course. This day of relaxation, swimming, music-making, barbeque and games has become a much-appreciated course tradition. Two years ago, before returning to the MBL, the course left its mark on the island: a lovely squid in the sand. Thanks to Neurobiology faculty member JoAnn Buchanan of Stanford University School of Medicine, who took the photos!

Matt Person, technical services coordinator in the MBLWHOI Library, walked out of a movie in Redfield Auditorium one June evening and into this serene scene. “It wasn’t difficult to capture,” he says. “It was one of those moments when you know you are looking at something beautiful, and all you need is a camera.”
