The Brandeis University commencement on May 24th was certainly different than usual because of the pandemic… Nevertheless, we are proud of the accomplishments of the brand-new, Kern-lab graduates and hope to celebrate with them in person at a later time!

Congratulations to Klarissa Hollander who finished the BS/MS program (also for being elected to the Brandeis University chapter of the Phi Beta Kappa honor society) and Liuyu Chen who obtained her Master degree.

On behalf of the Kern-lab-family: congratulations, enjoy a little break, and all the best on your next adventures!
