Migrating cranial neural crest cells ✨✨✨ These guys give rise to the bones and cartilage in your face. If they don’t migrate properly you can end up with craniofacial defects, such as cleft palate. #neuralcrest #embryology #cellsonthemove

A day at The Huntington. But Indie is sad he doesn’t have Ray-Bans 😎 #raybans #babyraybans #huntingtongardens #mylittlefamily

I was going through some old slides and found this section of a mouse embryo from my first year of grad school. I definitely don’t miss mouse work, but the embryos are beautiful. This is at embryonic day 10.5, head is toward upper left corner. That empty space in it will be the brain. #mouseembryo #embryology #science

Found a dead turtle a while back and fed it to the flesh eating beetles. Now I just need to rebuild the skeleton. #dermestidbeetles #turtleskull #whatididatworktoday

Well, at least it’s accurate. But seriously, how is my baby half a year old already?! (Slash how have we STILL not found childcare?!) #6monthsold #phdbaby #caltechproblems

Thanks to this little embryo I’m not sure if I’ll ever get the chance to take the Woods Hole embryology course. But hey, at least we have a shirt! #woodshole #phdbaby #pretendingwewerethere

Saturday night 🍸 #embryology #gradschoollife #🐣

Had a babysitter come to lab so i could actually do some experiments DURING THE DAY yesterday! This chicken embryo and it’s friends are the product. #childcareproblems #embryology #science #phdbaby

Just one year ago Indie was a tiny little embryo 💜 this was the first picture we ever saw of him and his little limb buds were waving at us! Look how big and chubby those limb buds got in one year 🥰 #indieclark #8weekspregnant #5monthsold #phdbaby #biology
