Special thanks to Oliver Vanderpoorten, one of our new members for organizing this most wonderful evening. We celebrated the end of a fantastic year of research and good news for our research group. The dinner featured a delicious display of typical English christmas turkey with all the trimmings -- and most certainly, Christmas crackers with paper crowns and jokes were included! This occasion also served to celebrate the recent doctoral thesis defense of Weiyue Chen, who performed some exemplary work on functional imaging of protein-protein interactions. Congrats Weiyue and good luck in all your future endeavors!
