Sumi, Jen and Graham at the ASM

May 27th, 2011

On May 21st Jen, Sumi and Graham met up outside Harrap's casino, New Orleans, Louisiana for a NOLA version of a light bite before meeting the next morning for attendance at the ASM meeting held at the huge conference center on the banks of the Mississippi.

All of us attended a number of cool sessions with my personal favourite being the combination of cool science, stand-up comedy and good cop/bad cop by Bonnie Bassler which stole the show.  Sumi presented our poster in the giant hall which seemed to be well received and certainly worth ironing that morning.  I certainly learnt alot from the high quality talks and speakers.  We even had time to meet a local celebrity (pictured).
