The very first two PhDs from our research group. Huge congratulations to Dr. Juan Polari and Dr. Lauren Crawford!
Congratulations to Hilary who passed her qualify exam on May 31st. She is feeling very relieved and excited about doing more experiments in the lab and in the kitchen.

We welcomed our newest member, Melon, in the lab this week! He is currently under training to become the best at what he does and loves to do, just like how everyone starts in our lab. He’s already mastered many impressive skills under the guidance of our lab specialist Shirley Li and gained approval from his labmates.
