It must be December! Snow is falling on Marquam Hill and the Kulesz-Martin Lab in Baird Hall is all decked out for the holidays. Toni West, a research volunteer, and Aletha Lesch, lab manager and research assistant, used old pipette racks, pipette tips, eppendorf tubes, PCR tubes and packing materials to create this one-of-a-kind Christmas tree.

Does your lab have any fun holiday traditions? Send us photos if you have them!

  1. This is such a fun idea. A friend of mine in Florida posted one on FB that was different flasks with colored liquid in them clamped to a central pole.

  2. Very festive! Love it.
