The 23rd International Workshop on Kaposi's Sarcoma Herpesvirus & Related Agents looked a little different this year, but nonetheless brought together a great group of scientists and trainees. Members of the Renne and Tibbets labs were in attendance, with several pictured above in a virtual group photo from one of the sessions. The conference organizers are still hoping to offer the 2022 conference in-person in Tanzania, as was planned for 2020.
Members of the Renne lab were happy to be back at our first in-person lab meeting in over a year! We shared a few treats, talked science and bananas, and were generally happy to have a bit more normalcy back in our lives!
Congratulations to our most recent Renne Lab graduates, Soleil Torres, MS, and Melissa Berrio!
