Visit of Profs. Kina Thackray and Scott Kelley

It is a great pleasure for us to welcome Prof. Kina Thackray and Profs. Scott Kelley, from UC San Diego and San Diego State University, respectively, who will accompany us for one month. Dr. Thackray and her group are mainly interested in the etiology and pathophysiology of polycystic ovary syndrome using relevant mouse and tissue culture models; Dr. Kelley's group combines bioinformatics and culture-independent molecular tools to study the built environment and the association of the microbiome with human health. Profs. Thackray and Kelley have had the chance to talk to our members about their reseach and the World Cup, and even joined a friendly soccer match with several PhD students and postdocs.
