MetaboSENS team is back to the lab stronger as ever. Welcome to Dr. Marco Hatem who has joined our team!
confinement, we are all finding creative ways to get work done!
From our couch, artistically drinking coffee, on our balcony…or making baguettes…
heroes will go long ways we get mission accomplished!
Away from labbench means even closer to nutrients and creative cooking for all MetaboSENS team! It makes a perfect sense that in this confinement we stimulate our metabolism with delicious calories from home made fresh pasta, pancakes, and baguettes to tempt class 3 PI3K.
27 March 2020 We had a lively discussion in our first journal club where all presented diverse research subjects from novel heat resistant proteins, bioluminescent squid, to autophagy in plants.
