Dinner at Casita Mexicana

Mexican dinner at Casita Mexicana to celebrate that the FlipoCytes family is complete. Our family started with the love of two passionate scientists, Nieves and Ale, who are a beautiful couple with two cute kids, Agus and Lolo. Last year they started their own independent labs at the University of Cologne to understand how cells in mammals decide to live or to die. To achieve this purpose, they brought together passionate scientists from different part of the world: Ximena and Lucas from Argentina, Mohammed from Egypt, Deniz from Turkey, Carlos from Spain and Kristel from Mexico. We say cheers for the upcoming achievements and for the many dinners to come!

Dear Kalvin, This year and a half has been amazing working with you. You are a great person and scientist. Your Lab wishes you an awsome PhD time in Switzerland. Dream big and keep making coffee!!! The AG Annibaldi doors will be always open for you :) We will miss you!
