A bonfire send-off for Hande, Niki and Leslee!
Best wishes and fond farewells to a number of dearly beloved Partch lab members, as they head off to bigger and better opportunities. The lab celebrated the departure with a beach bonfire -- life in Santa Cruz is pretty amazing!
Dr. Hande Asimgil (a.k.a. The Cowboy) is moving back to Europe to pursue research opportunities closer to home. Leslee is pursuing a career in medicine after finishing up her B.S. degree, and Niki is headed to a PhD program in the Department of Structural Biology at Stanford this fall. Not pictured here: Kyle (#TAZlife), who already took a job with Thermo Fisher and is living the dream down in San Diego. We'll miss you all!
