The last two years have been incredibly trying for everyone, and it is important to take care of your mental health. I know very well this is easier said than done. Being double-vaccinated, with a booster on the horizon, I do feel like I see a glimmer of light at the end of the pandemic tunnel. Activity in the lab is slowly picking up, and although masks and physical distancing will be with us for a while yet, occupancy restrictions are gradually easing up, and it's nice to see more people around! Anna and Mohammad are making good progress despite the challenges, and undergraduate student, Anushka Kothari, is helping the lab get an Auxin-inducible degradation system up and running. We have lots of snow in Winnipeg, and temperatures are starting to drop. I'm lucky to be one of those Manitobans that happens to love winter! I've added a few pics from around the city that capture the beauty of 'Winterpeg'.
