Caught in the act!! Staying warm while pipetting

PhD student Sarah Gignoux-Wolfsohn tries to stay warm while pipetting bacterial samples.

Today I found PhD student Sarah Gignoux-Wolfsohn trying to keep warm in the lab. Sarah works on the bacterial causes of white band diseases in Caribbean coral. Half of her work is conducted at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama. The other half of her work is conducted in the lab at our Northeastern University Marine Science Center. The lab has to be air-conditioned year-round to prevent the PCR thermocyclers from overheating, so even in the summer you see lots of sweaters and scarves!
