Saying Hello and Saying Goodbye

Congratulations to Eva Chou on her successful defence of her Master's thesis in December! Through hard work and dedication she showed us all how it's done! It will be so sad to lose her presence in the lab.

But we must move on, and welcome new PhD student Mendel Perkins, who joins us from the Samuel Lab (not the Samuels Lab!) at the University of Calgary. I'm sure we'll be seeing more of Mendel as he gets started on his project in the lab.
