LMB 365 – Day 39

Day 39 of #LMB365 is a photograph of Rob Kay in Cell Biology who has recently stepped down as a Group Leader at the LMB after 34 years. He is pictured with his retirement gift – a microscope he brought with him to the LMB back in 1984, which has now had a beautiful box made of Afromosia (African teak) to store it in. The box was made by the LMB’s Technical Instrumentation Workshop using old lab benches salvaged from the old LMB building many years ago. Rob will be continuing to work as an Emeritus Scientist within the LMB.
