Virtual lab tour – the ASARI lab

Here is how a new lab at EMBL looks.

A brand-new glass door with a cool EMBL logo. Yes, we have an open environment to facilitate effective group interaction and communication.

A darkroom with custom-made experimental rigs. This room is of course very specific to our lab to study the visual responses of the retina both in vitro and in vivo.

And a workshop! I am very proud of having a 3D printer, a milling machine, and other power tools so that we can build things like microscopes by ourselves.

We have a remodeling plan for the entire building. So, all the labs should (more or less) look like this soon!

P.S. We also have a plan to recruit more group leaders. So, stay tuned!

  1. Great to see it all taking shape! It was all rather empty when I met you there last spring. I’d love to see the 3D printer in action.
