Dr. Proano graduates!

This post is long overdue!. Back in December 2018, Gabriel Proano successfully defended his doctoral dissertation titled “3D-printed custom substratum to accentuate fast functional responses from microbial colonization”. I had the pleasure of conducting the hooding during Auburn University’s commencement in December and he was formally anointed as Dr. Proano. :-). His proud mother was in attendance and he promptly headed back to Ecuador to be with the rest of his family. Several research papers from his dissertations should be made available in archival journals over the next year. Sorry Gabriel for not doing this sooner…
