Lunch 'n' Learn: We need you!

The Lunch ‘n’ Learn has been a time for you to exchange with other students and learn (we hope) new microscopy techniques from sample preparation all the way to image analysis.

Chloë and Ian thoroughly enjoyed this bi-weekly event and plan to organize it again next year!

Let us know how you liked/disliked it and contribute to the potential topics for next year.

Please help us improve it by answering this 2 min survey :https://forms.office.com/r/uypimEwGi9

Thank you!
