Today was the day ... I’ve been waiting more than a month to get an appointment for my TSA global entry interview... now canceled thanks to politics & govt. shutdown :(
I feel so fortunate to have such a great team of international scholars, Emory grad and undergrad students in #QuaveLab & #emory #herbarium ! We held our holiday potluck celebration tonight - great food & lots of fun & laughter together. This is what being a team is all about!
Wrapping up last experiments with Faraz, a visiting scholar from Pakistan who spent the past 6 months working with us to assess the antibacterial bioactivity of #medicinalplants for his PhD research. So great to see the international impact of our #QuaveLab trainees!
We had a fun visit with Dr. Wayne Jonas of the Samueli Foundation. Lots of great things to chat about concerning Integrative health, botanicals, and natural products! #QuaveLab
What a wonderful lecture and visit by @DrWayneJonas ! His new book “How Healing Works” takes readers on a fascinating tour of Integrative health.
