A special message about Lab Operations at MBL:

After 24 years of service to the MBL and our vendor partners, Martha Peterson has officially retired. From chocolate to confocals, for over two decades, Martha procured everything needed to support scientists in Loeb Laboratory. We wish her the very best in her next chapter. In the post-COVID era we plan to host a celebration of Martha and her contribution to the MBL – stay tuned for details.

We would also like to introduce the newest member of our team, Maia Theophanis, our new Lab Operations manager. Maia comes to us from the Sea Education Association where she was the Science Operations Coordinator supporting research on land and aboard their two sailing vessels. Welcome Maia!
