Dana and I visited the ESRF at Grenoble to look at Toxoplasma with X-ray fluorescence microscopy. Some beautiful scenery and images, and hopefully some nice data!
So last week, Dr Jack Hanna started in the lab as a post doc, and Leandre and Remo, students from Stellenbosch University in South Africa, started their 6 week exchange project investigating novel compounds on Toxoplasma gondii. To celebrate, we went for the traditional Glasgow meal of Thai food. Its going to be a fun few weeks!
