Even when it’s not science, it’s still kind of pretty much science.

Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do. It starts with bringing together a diverse group of great minds to advance science and solve problems. But it doesn't end there...

Getting together for pure socializing is a great way to bring new team members into the mix, allow lab members to learn a little more about each other and even introduce significant others and friends from outside the lab or the UPenn community.

Our regularly-scheduled happy hours are not just an afterthought. Stronger personal relationships and infusing lab culture with some fun makes a huge difference. Whether through whiskey tasting lectures or sampling eclectic microbrews - carried back with us from the latest conference - these are the opportunities to build team momentum and cultivate new ideas in a supportive and positive environment.
