After two days of setting up the lab and attending various trainings and orientations, John sets up the group’s first reaction (on a brand new IKA plate, no less).
Having graduated a few months ago, John Gurak arrives from UT Arlington for a summer rotation in the Engle lab. First up on the agenda: ordering supplies, unpacking, and setting up benches/fumehoods. A generous donation of chemicals from the Rebek lab, along with an assortment of equipment and glassware from the group of the late Carlos Barbas, have gone great lengths to seed our group’s research program.
Lab renovations at Scripps were completed on schedule in early June, just in time for the arrival of Keary and the rest of the team. Equipment and supplies are currently arriving, and experiments will soon be underway. The next phase of this renovation project will be the immediately adjacent bay (BCC 163), which will begin in the coming months.
