We say farewell to our lab manager, Brian Schmidt. Brian fell in love with the graduate student next door (yes, really!), and they’re moving to sunny southern CA together. In the Merrins lab, Brian published three co-author papers in Diabetes, Cell Reports, and J Physiology. He has accepted a position with Dr. Smita Iyer, and will move from mice to primate research. Brian, we will miss you and your fiancé, and wish you both the best.
