On Friday January 31st, the lab said au-revoir to Adam Kardon – we all miss you, seriously a lot! For his send off, we had perogies and beer at the Bloomfield Bridge Tavern, Adam’s favorite dive bar. Adam was the first employee of the Ross lab two and a half years ago. Though he was hired as a tech, Adam thought like a PI and was a key driver of science in the Ross lab. His work resulted in a first-authored paper (currently under review at Neuron) and won him first prize for his poster at the 7th World Congress on Itch. Adam is leaving for a trip to Peru and then medical school. Congratulations Adams! We are very proud of you and wish you every future success!
