To celebrate the successful laboratory move as well as our recent graduates (Nima Ghorasi with his B.S. in Biology and Shanxi Jiang with her PhD in Molecular, Cellular, and Integrative Physiology), Dr. Vondriska hosted the lab for an afternoon of barbecue, swimming, and fun in the sun.

The Lab Moves

Recently, the lab moved spaces and while we will fondly look back at the good times had and work done in the old lab, we are excited to turn a fresh leaf.

                                            (L-R) 1. Manuel packs the first box. One down, several dozen to go! 2. Rose diligently packs away materials. 3. Doug finds an ancient relic. Some sort of music device, perhaps?                                                                              

                                                                                                              Lab members strategizing over their Lab of Thrones victories. No dragons were harmed in the staging of these photos.

                                                                                                        Goodbye, old lab!                                                                   Hello, new lab!
