As with other trainees around the nation, our Institute for Biomedical Science (IBS) PhD students and postdocs have seen their research progress “paused” in light of the pandemic, but they’ve still been very busy. Our senior students have continued their research remotely, pursuing data analysis, figures and manuscripts, mini-reviews, journal clubs, lab and special interest group meetings, and maybe an added virtual happy hour or two.
