As every year, the lab and its former alumni are invited to spend altogether a ski week-end in Taufers. In the program: 3 days of fun, ocsillating between skiing, snowboarding, apres-ski, games, 2 birthday celebrations (happy birthday Marco and Raphael!) and amazing food, drinks in the hotel we specially rent for this event. We already look very much forward to next year!
Surprise goodbye party
We could not have let our guest PhD student Xinnan Cui leave the group back to Japan without a proper goodbye party. So happy surprise crepe party to celebrate 8 months of collaboration and fun! We hope you enjoyed your stay and that your Swiss gifts will contribute in inciting you to coming back to see us in Zürich.
New PhD students
The lab is happy to announce the start of three new PhD members: Yves Blickenstorfer, Cathelijn van Nisselroy and Ines Lüchtefeld. Welcome in the group and we wish you lots of fun with your exciting PhD projects! (Fiber optic biosensing, 3D (bio)printing wth the FluidFM, and Neurons manipulation with the FluidFM respectively).
As every year, the group members and their spouses could enjoy a fun and tasteful evening in a chalet in Bülach to celebrate Christmas by gathering around home-made Glühwein, swiss raclette and delicious desserts! Secret Santa also stopped by the chalet and made a lot of happy faces. Merry Christmas everyone!
