Our Lighter Side

The rigors of serious research must be balanced with periods of rest and refreshment in order to achieve excellence in scientific study and creativity. Plus its fun to get out of the lab every once in a while ...

One of the ways the HCIL celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2012-2013 is to bake 30 cakes. Our 30 cakes for 30 years website displays all the cakes our lab members brought in to celebrate throughout the year.
