Many 2013 Outing sponsors met on a chilly February evening at the CSHL for an evening of appreciation. To the backdrop of a photo presentation of the 1st Outing and T.J.’s life, donors enjoyed a glass of wine, a few words of thanks from Tom Arcati and a speech from Dr. Bruce Stillman about plans for the ambitious research project.
The highlight of the evening was a tour of the Demerec Lab. Our donors were able to view a working lab and experience a rare opportunity to be inside the halls of research. Although difficult to understand for most, everyone left with a better understanding and appreciation for the work involved. Some expressed an appreciation for seeing the work in progress rather than just hearing or reading about it.
