Virtual Group Meetings and Goodbyes

While the lab has been remote for the past few weeks, we are still keeping up our group meetings – virtually. Unfortunately that also means we can’t go out to lunch together for the time being. One of our post docs, Tugba, has to return to Turkey so we had a virtual lunch today to say goodbye. We will miss you!
