Snow usually doesn’t stick around long in Seattle, so when members of the lab discovered that the overnight dusting was more serious than usual — and that it would last well into the afternoon — the normally scheduled 3pm lab meeting was called of so that scores could be settled in the cold. Or maybe it …

Lab ski trip: Stevens Pass
Spring has sprung in Seattle, and blue skies mean mountain ski trips for the lab. To kick of 2018, lab members Tarik, Fatima, Scott, TJ, Brian C, Gabe B, David B, and friends spent a Sunday at beautiful Stevens Pass
Hiking the Alpine Lakes of the Central Cascades
It’s been a hot summer in Seattle! To escape the heat, the lab headed east to the Alpine Lakes of the Central Cascades. Some hikes were short (just enough to swim in Melakwa Lake) and some were long (tracking until they hit snow). Zibo, a graduate student in the lab, brought a drone along to …
Adventure in the North Cascades
Some intrepid lab members – David included – recently scaled the North Cascades just two hours outside of Seattle. Fortunately postdoc Alexis Courbet brought his camera gear along, capturing these beautiful scenes.
The lab goes to Paradise
After months of grey Seattle skies, the lab leapt at a chance to synthesize some vitamin D in Paradise (an actual place at the base of Mount Rainier). Some snowshoed, some skied, and others showed up in the afternoon for a delicious lab BBQ. Couldn’t ask for a more beautiful day!
Halloween 2016 – Rise of the Davids
Happy Halloween! We celebrated early because a party on Monday isn’t as good as a Friday, of course. Take a look at the great costumes this year – it’ll have you seeing double, no, a score! There was also a menagerie of animals running amok, a beaten-up pinata, and an absolutely TERRIFYING scarecrow.
This past Friday we bid a fond farewell to Fabio Parmegianni as he embarked on his next stage of life, or as some call it, the P.B. (Post-Bakerite) era. Though we will miss him, we wish him the best of luck at the University of Bristol in the UK. The lab will undoubtedly be a …
2015 Lab Holiday Party
On Friday the 18th we had our lab Holiday party! It was supposed to be ugly sweater attire, but only a few of us came dressed appropriately. Fortunately, more people were proactive when participating in the potluck aspect! We had homemade goodies galore, including a creme caramel that had rave reviews, many delicious cookies, an …
Jacob Bale’s Defense
On Thursday, December 17th, Jacob Bale defended and passed with flying colors! To celebrate, we had various kinds of ice cream floats; some of his family members who attended the defense even joined us in enjoying the sweet treats. We look forward to seeing what Jacob will do in the future. Congratulations!
Halloween party pictures!
Back in October, the Baker lab threw a party to celebrate “All Hallows Eve”! Costume was encouraged, but not required, though a contest was held for best group outfit and best solo outfit. The gang from “Inside Out” made an awesome showing, and all five emotions were present. There was also a battle of good …
