MPI has an annual costume competition…we went as the Toxoplasma life cycle complete with Toxoplasma (Ece), an infected human brain (Sara), the cat host (Bruna), Chronic stage in hiding (Shamir) and a crazy cat lady (me).
Shamir joins us from Montreal and brings his expertise in metabolism…and help in opening boxes and chemicals :)
Photos of the lab space prior to colonization!
Lab officially opens at the Max Planck Institute for Biology Of Ageing In 1/1/2019—until then will be working as a visiting scientist at the Whitehead Institute to learn CRISPR Screens and organello-metabolomics
Bruna Garcia Martins will be joining following the completion of her Master’s Thesis with Dr. Marcos Chiaratti at the Federal University of São Carlos! Hopefully she brings some brigadeiros with her :)
