We say farewell to our research intern Chetan Poudel as he heads to graduate school “over the pond”. In <2 years, Che published one co-first author paper in Diabetes and three co-author manuscripts in Biophysical Journal, Diabetes, and J Physiology, and became an imaging guru and expert beta cell patch-clamper. Based on this work, Che was awarded two international scholarships (the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network Award, and will attend Cambridge University (in the UK). Che decided on Clement Kaminski’s optical physics laboratory as part of the Cambridge Center for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies. Che, we will miss you!
