This weekend, the Atlantic Regional Comparative Physiology (ARCP) 2012 conference was held in beautiful Saint Andrews, New Brunswick, at the Huntsman Marine Science Centre Fundy Discovery Aquarium. Attendees included faculty members and students from Mount Allison University, the University of New Brunswick (both the Fredericton and Saint John campuses), and Dalhousie University.
Chris delivered a presentation on the Suppression of MAPKAPK2 in hibernating mammals (based on one of his very recent publications); it may very well have been the only non-marine presentation at the conference, but based on feedback, it was well-received.
It was a fantastic event and all participating faculty members and students are to be commended. Special kudos to Dr. Tyson MacCormack from Mount Allison University for a fantastic job organizing the event!
