We published a paper in Current Biology this week on the Mechanisms of Convergent Egg Provisioning in Poison Frogs. This work was performed equally by Eva Fischer and Alex Roland, current and past postdocs in the lab. Our own Nora Moskowitz performed the toxin analysis. It was the result of 4 years of hard work starting at Harvard and finished up at Stanford.
