Vasilopita - Lucky Cake Celebration for the Mourkioti Lab




The Last Lab Meeting of the year started with 3 amazing talks from Lauryn, Sam and Dimitris. Pizza, white elephant and ornament decorations followed the talks. What an amazing Lab!!! Looking forward to an even more successful 2023, full of fellowships, grants, papers and many exciting new discoveries.  

White elephant starts....
Proudly presenting our gifts!

Thanks Nick and Chris for joining us!




Thanks for all your work to organize the Lab for everyone. It looks great! 


The Mourkioti Lab enjoyed a virtual movie night watching "GATTACA", a 1997 science fiction movie over drinks and dinner. Interesting how after so many years, some concepts remain valid. Looking forward to our next movie night!



A big thanks to Dr. Llyun Wang and her student Shaopeng Pei for a warm welcome and demonstration of an experimental procedure on a Saturday!


Thank you Sienna for showing us around the beautiful DU campus and the fantastic ice cream place! See you in September in our lab!

Lots of creativity and hard work into pumpkin curving! David is the winner of this competition and got a gift card for Penn's Bookstore. Congrats David!


We had fun playing Pictionary and trying our drawing skills. Thank you Sylvia, Nat, Christina and Julia for joining us! It is sad when you have to say goodbye to people who leave but we all wish Nick all the best for his new adventure! 


A number of things to celebrate: 3 papers accepted for publication, 2 grants funded as well as 2 July birthdays. Way to go Lab!!!


Our move to the first floor of Stemmler Hall is complete. We love our new lab space!
