Cell Biology X’mas Party 2017

Happy Holidays from the Watanabe lab!


*made out of empty glass bottles that normally store Epon.
We processed so many samples for electron microscopy this year.
>1,100 for the year…
I am afraid to calculate how much it costed to purchase the sapphire disks….

Happy Holidays!

A year-ending party at Shiso Tavern. Had fun discussing science and life!

NEB shipment?

A surprise visitor of the lab! Perhaps came out of the NEB shipment?
