Talia decides to go to the University of Chicago for graduate school
After months of indecision Talia Karasov, a former undergraduate and currently a research assistant in the lab, has decided to go to the University of Chicago for graduate school. She will be a student there in the committee of genetics, genomics and systems biology and will likely be studying evolutionary and population genetics of Arabidopsis thaliana. Talia's graduate school application process resulted in what can only be described as an embarassment of riches. She was accepted and then heavliy recruited by every University she applied to. Cornell, Princeton, Berkeley, University of Chicago all wanted Talia to come. By all accounts the choice was extremely hard but had to be made. We are all extremely proud and planning to celebrate!
