A few months ago, someone in our lab was the lucky recipient of one of those helium-filled balloons that you can buy in supermarkets. The balloon now moves from lab bench to bench to celebrate good news, like PCR reactions that work the way they are supposed to, acceptance into grad programs, and awards. Today the balloon floated over Lyndon’s desk to celebrate winning an Ontario Graduate Scholarship for 2016-2017. Here’s Lyndon checking flies and honeybees on yellow aconites, the first blossoms on campus, and a sure sign that spring field work is coming soon.
Update: last week Lyndon also got an NSERC MSc scholarship!
