Congratulations to Sophie Katz, who presented her research at the 20th International C. elegans Conference, held at the University of California, Los Angeles on June 27, 2015. Sophie is currently a predoctoral research fellow in the Cell and Molecular Biology Training Program, which is supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Sophie studies cytoskeleton dynamics in the epidermis of larvae. Sophie developed a genetically encoded label for F-actin. Using this reagent, she uncovered striking rearrangements in the actin cytoskeleton associated with epidermal morphogenesis. She continues to study the factors that regulate these dynamic structures and thereby shape the worm body. She looks forward to presenting her findings at the upcoming Society for Developmental Biology Conference, to be held in Boston, MA in August of 2016.
