The Muller lab was busy this summer – so what’s new? – we attended 4 conferences where we learned a lot and made new friends; – we welcomed Alexis Heredia as a visiting summer student from la Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo Leon (Mexico); – we are excited to welcome Brittany Anderson as a Microbiology rotation student; And also: countless gels and hours at the microscope, some exciting science, some frustrating science, probably too many ice creams but not enough coffee — We’re ready for the Fall semester!
