The Frank lab in July strengthened ties with its Vollum Institute partners with a retreat on the Deschutes River.
We were joined by members of the Murthy, Jackman, and Saunders labs, with the goal of building relationships and exchanging ideas as part of Dr. James Frank’s joint appointment to the Vollum.
While most members of the other labs slept in on the camping trip, the Frank lab (and friends) rolled out at 4 a.m. to fish the Deschutes. Coached by Dr. Frank. Xander successfully landed a bass within his first three casts!
“The camping trip was a lot of fun, and also productive,” Dr. Frank said. “These connections built a strong foundation for future collaboration, and we all look forward to working with the Murthy and Jackman labs in the future.”
