WHO WE ARE

I do science because it is a great way of serving while having fun. Being able to make a living from joyful service is a blessing.

"Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world"

- Louis Pasteur

"The important thing is to be there when the picture is painted"

-Francis Crick

"I don't want to believe, I want to know."

- Carl Sagan

We are a passionate, self-motivated group of scientists at all levels of training from undergraduate to post-doctoral.  We value integrity, curiosity and commitment, and we believe that individuals who possess these traits can help us achieve our common scientific goals. We also believe that intellectual diversity creates the ideal setting in which to ask and answer critical questions. This belief is reflected in our diverse, international composition and the wide range of academic and professional experiences amongst our members.

 

Outside the lab, we are a group of ordinary people doing extraordinary things. One of us climbed El Capitan three times, one of us bikes to work even when it's 20 below, one of us fences and cooks a mean beef tongue, another one plays seven musical instruments.

 

This is us:                                                                                                                                                                 Click on our pictures to email us.

I love the smell of lysis buffer in the morning, it smells like...victory.
