Our first labiversary!

Twelve months ago, the Kavran Lab opened it's doors.    It didn't take us that long to move in and baptize our floor with the first Coommassie stain.   The past year has brought a few challenges and more than a few accomplishments.  We couldn't have made it this far without the support of our departmental colleagues and the scientific community at Hopkins, so thank you for that.    Most importantly, we are excited about what comes next! 

 

On to the merriment, because you know that besides science our other passion is eating.  We celebrated our Labiversary with a lab lunch at Iggies.     To help mark the occasion we brought along some friends and collaborators.

Departmental Retreat

At the annual BMB departmental retreat, the Kavran Lab was well represented.   Leah Cairns presented a short talk and Thao Tran presented a poster.    We opted to not take a picture of the seminar as we didn't want to be the overbearing lab, but instead took a sneaky picture of Thao regaling the department with all things Hippo.

In what I assume will be the first of many food-themed outing, the lab headed out for some free ice-cream courtesy of the School's Centennial celebration.   While there, we stopped by the photo booth for our first ever group shoot.   I think we look we fabulous!
