Welcome Elke and happy birthday Carole!

11 01 2014

Dr. Elke Scheibler arrived late last night. A post-doctoral fellow in chronobiology at Stuttgart University, she is going to do some of her habilitation research here. She plans to stay at least six months, maybe a year depending on how things work out here and at home, and she’ll be looking at how environmental enrichment affects sleep and activity rhythms in mice. We had a small “European gathering” at the Red Brick Cafe to welcome her this afternoon, and by chance it was Carole‘s birthday too, so a double celebration. Anticlockwise from front left: Walter,  Carole, Maria, Elke and me (photos, as ever, taken by Alexandra).
