Ride for Dad Summit in Whitehorse
Oleg attended Ride for Dad Research Summit in Whitehorse. Ride for Dad is Canadawide organization of motorcycle riders who raise funds for prostate cancer research. The event brought together the researchers funded by Ride for Dad and riders from all over the country. The warm hospitality of our Whitehorse hosts, the amazing group of people that came together at this meeting, and the breathtaking beauty of Yukon made it an unforgettable experience.
In the photo: The researchers and the organization leaders at the President's dinner. Garry Janz who started the Ride almost two decades ago is the third from the left. Since 2000, Ride for Dad donated 25 million dollars to prostate cancer research. Below: Yukon landscapes. I can't imagine that anybody who has visited Yukon once does not dream of coming back.

Back to school: SAXS+NMR=...
Oleg attended a week-long course on small angle X-ray scattering in biology (BioSAXS) at the Advanced Photon Source (pictured) at Argonne National Laboratory. A very useful and rather underused method for studies of multidomain proteins and protein complexes! I hope we can do SAXS at Canadian Light Source some day!

The lab members join a team of cancer survivors and supporters for a dragon boat race.
Two of our lab members joined "It is always something" team of cancer survivors and their supporters for a day of dragon boat racing on lake Wingra in Madison, WI. Don't ask how we did, but it was a lot of fun! Amazing organization and a great way to bring together people who beat cancer and those whose lives were touched by its shadow.
