Bubble tea(m) celebration

January 31, 2022

In science, getting a paper accepted in a journal is one of the highlights in our careers. Today, our first paper on the distribution of Klb mRNA in the hypothalamus, hippocampus, and amygdala was accepted for publication in The Journal of Comparative Neurology! This was a true team effort. To celebrate, we went out for bubble tea (aka boba) because you see, some of the figures we produced looked like pink boba. 



De-stressing with ballet

December 10, 2021

Oh, this was super fun and just what we needed to make time for ourselves amid the stress that comes with the end of a semester. We attempted to arabesque, plie, pirouette, tendu, and a few other french-sounding ballet tricks. Many of us got out of our comfort zone to try this for the first time, and perhaps a few people rekindled their past dancer selves. Thank you School of Dance for providing live piano music and Ms. Tanis! 


For our new teammates

October 2021

A few new members joined the lab over the summer, and we are making sure everyone has a little Ms. (Aloe) Vera Wang spawn to go home to. May they grow and expand like knowledge!
