Open House!

Today HUMlab is having an open house! We are still in the middle of reconstruction, however we are taking the chance to show off a little :-). With lots of changes on the horizon, this is a great chance to stop, before the momentum gets to strong, and reflect on where we have come and where we are going. When I began at the lab, there were two phd students, a few core staff, and a great lab. The lab is similar (yet updated), we have more than doubled our phd’s and we also added 4 post-doc. It is an exciting time to be in the lab now. (I am sure our director can add more about The State of the Lab later)

In the meantime, if you are in Umeå, come check us out. We are under the library and we will begin at 13 CET. The program can be found below:
