Rainbow

Look what our intrepid observer Yawei spotted outside. It seems that stay-at-home won’t stop us from making observations. Imagine that you are the first human to ever observe a rainbow, how would you explain it? Or would you rather just enjoy it?

 

Virtual reunion

The virtual celebration for Dana’s paper turned into a lab Zoom reunion on April 7, 2020. It was great to see everyone who could make it and hear stories from different eras of the lab.

First Cohen Research Conference

The first ever Cohen Research Conference was held on Feb 25-27, 2020 at Stonehaven Castle, Eureka Springs, AR. Every conference attendee registered online for the conference and presented a talk. Other activities included communal cooking, board-games, day-time and night-time hikes, a meditation session, sciencing around a campfire, spotting constellations on a clear black sky, balancing the entire lab on a log, and impromptu midnight performances with the guitar by Barak. It was a truly special experience.  Thanks to Clarice and Jeff, the chief organizers of the retreat.
