Social events


Aside from all the science we do in the Anderson lab, we're also quite a social bunch! We are a large group of diverse and interesting group members with a wide range of shared interests from baking to board games to football. Here's a sample of some of our more recent get togethers!

First team retreat in over 2 years!

September 2022

Our first retreat in two years was an excellent one! Filled with riveting talks, challenging team-building tasks, frantically cooked meals, all sorts of sports and a splash of hot-tub karaoke that went into the early hours... Until the next one!

Aντιο σας Νίκος

July 2022

Nikos departs the group and despite our long-planned efforts to have a punting and BBQ social we were thwarted by weather and ended up in a restaurant last minute. Still had a great time saying goodbye to Nikos and hopefully there's still time in the year to do the punt + BBQ!

Goodbye Tong, Leland, Rebecca and Vasiliki

April 2022

Several team members were leaving with a few months of one another so we decided to have a joint celebration of their time in the group! All were fantastic team members who will be dearly missed by us all!
