Every Friday the lab gets together to have bagels for breakfast, sometimes cake for birthdays or for those who have successfully defended their thesis. This time gives people the chance to get to know each other better on a personal level, whether they are professors, graduate students, post-docs, or interns. Talks range from current research and new findings to how someone’s vacation went and what the plans are for this weekend. It builds a strong community and also a close, comfortable work environment that is actually fun to be a part of. I feel lucky to be a part of such a great lab where I have been able to make new friends, have a great mentor that has been nothing but supportive, and work on interesting and important research!
