Jason Macrander, Gabriel Langford, and Baylie Fadool.

You may recall a recent story about Baylie Fadool, who received her undergraduate degree in biological sciences in December of last year. She currently volunteers at the Bimini Biological Field Station as the media assistant.

She reached out to share that the station just had a course visit from Florida Southern College on October 20-26 where she had the opportunity to connect with two professors who are also Nebraska alumni.

Gabriel Langford received his Ph.D. in parasitology in 2010. He is currently an associate professor of biology at Florida Southern College where he runs the Langford Lab, which focuses on amphibians, reptiles, and fishes as model systems for studying parasite life histories.

Jason Macrander received his Bachelor's degree in biological sciences and fisheries and wildlife in 2007 and his Master's degree in ecology, evolution, and behavior in 2010. He is currently an assistant professor of marine biology studying venom evolution and molecular diversity with sea anemones as a model organism. Macrander shared some of his research with us this past week on venom evolution.

Crazy how Huskers can find each other, even in South Bimini, Bahamas. We love that they are all repping the Huskers—Go Big Red!
