SfN Virtual Conference

January 11-13, 2021

We attended our first virtual conference at the SfN Global Connectome. Persephone and Bianca presented their virtual posters! They pre-recorded a short audio clip that accompanied the poster and had a 30-min live video chat session with conference attendees. Lively conversation and meaningful connections in the chatroom. 

As Bianca notes, we are keeping up the tradition of posing beside our posters anyways. Enjoy!


Cheelab virtual holiday party

December 18, 2020

We rounded off the year with a virtual photoshoot and yankee swap. Despite the loneliness of a remote-everything-year, being together always brought a smile to cheer us up. So much laughter, energetic/confused pets, bright colors, and everyone left with a little gift ranging from cozy to yummy to keep company. 

Happy holidays from us to you!
