….and with summer comes summer students! We have two great students with us this summer, both from abroad. The first is Leen Al-Hafaz, who comes to us courtesy of our good friend and colleague Ben Shykind. Leen is a newly-minted medical student at the Weill Cornell Medical School in Qatar, and will be working with Dan and Paul on olfactory transcriptomics for the summer. The other is Luigi Federico Rossi, who joins us from the University of Pisa and comes to us courtesy of a Giovanni Armenise Foundation summer fellowship. Luigi, who actually goes by Federico, is affectionately called Rico in the lab, for reasons obvious to all who are fans of the early 90s Equadorian hitmaker Gerardo. He will also work with Dan and Paul. Welcome to both!
