Rebekah has created new lab logos for the MMBL!

We are excited to share our new lab logo (shown in the top left corner of the MMBL website!). Many thanks to new lab member Rebekah Adams for creating multiple new lab graphics as well as lab member portraits and cartoons!

Rebekah, your creativity and artistic skill reminds me of the paintings by Maria Klawe, the President of Harvey Mudd College. To quote Prof. Klawe: "Today, I show paintings whenever I try to recruit students to engineering. I want them to know that many leading engineers and scientists are artists, musicians, dancers, or writers. Engineering and science are creative disciplines. It shouldn’t be surprising that the creative energy, passion, and talent cross into other areas. I can’t imagine living without painting. It’s a form of expression of ideas and emotion that I cannot express through any other medium."
