Escape Room

At the end of July, Chase and Brittany will be leaving the lab and as for a going away party the lab did an escape room! We were split into two teams and battled it out. It was close but Chase's team narrowly won, although through luck. Brittany's team took the moral win for actually figuring out the answer ;) Good luck in Michigan!

Today the Major lab said goodbye to Megan and she leaves for her postdoc at Stanford. We had a fun time at the park playing chess, cornhole, and enjoying some local sandwiches from Pickles Deli. Even Mr. Bear made an appearance! Good Luck Megan!

Due to COVID and Visas, some of us couldn't travel for the holidays. On a warm December day after Christmas, those of us who didn't travel got together to hang out in Chase and Brittany's apartment's "Person Park". Brittany made some chili hand pies, copying Megan from the last get together. Image credit goes to Soma :)

We had a socially distanced get together to celebrate pretty much everything good that had happened in 2020. Chase ran home and got his drone to take a picture of all of us. Unfortunately it couldn't get high enough and didn't quite get Isaac, our rotation student, in the picture. Sorry Isaac!
