In October 2020 we said goodbye to Alessandra Merenda, who finished her post-doc in our lab. Alessandra started her new adventure as a scientist at HUB organoids. She received three gifts from the lab: a giant chocolate organoid cake, a jar of fortune candies (instead of fortune cookies), and a big photo book with personal messages from the group members. We will miss you, Alessa! And we hope to organize a proper goodbye dinner or borrel when this is allowed again.
