We said goodbye this week to our long-time technician / lab manager, Lucas Restrepo. Lucas was the first member of the lab, joining shortly after Tim arrived at Jefferson, in March of 2017. He worked very hard on establishing the lab infrastructure, our culture, and on pushing back the frontiers of knowledge about synaptic maturation. Though it’s always hard to say goodbye to one of our mainstays, Lucas is off to be a graduate student at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester, so we know success is in his future! Our immense thanks to Lucas for everything he’s done for our lab. We’ll miss him! Good luck in grad school!
