It’s been six months since I closed the lab, and temporarily suspended experiments including the LTEE, due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.
The failure to contain this epidemic, especially here in the United States, is truly shocking and sad.
Still, we’ve gotten a lot done. Two superb dissertations completed by Nkrumah Grant and Kyle Card. Several excellent papers submitted, and more on the way. Everyone in the lab remains healthy, and in my own family as well, even as we know that many others have suffered illness and losses.
And please, everyone: Wear your mask and maintain social distancing to protect not only yourself and your own family, but also your community and beyond.
