Below, you will find posts about events we’ve had during the years. These include occasions like celebrations for accepted articles, thesis defenses, Christmas parties, and other nice instances of camaraderie.
That’s a tiny percentage, isn’t it? Our leader, Kai Kaarniranta, resides well within that portion amongst the world’s experts in macular degeneration, now ranking at the 20th spot! Big applause!
No no, we didn’t turn into pirates. We just got together (this time properly) to celebrate our latest publication in Ageing Research Reviews. Big hand to all involved parties!
As we got a paper published and another one accepted, it is only right to go outside in the fresh air to celebrate and appreciate the white snow and blue skies! (Well, in spirit anyways. The photo is definitely photoshopped.)
I mean, we got featured on the cover of the December 2020 edition of Oftalmolog (link to the .pdf file), a Nordic ophthalmology magazine! Huge thanks to Oftalmolog for this opportunity to spread our group’s name far and wide!
Despite the current times, being jolly and having fun (safely) is still an important thing. This year, we once again got together with our friends to celebrate Christmas time with some good old glögi and various tasty treats. Afterwards we had
a traditional Finnish Christmas dinner Chinese food at Dragon Sheng. Good times, haha.
You can see the original photo of the above image on the cover of Education Sciences’ December 2020 issue. We published a well-received article last year on the effect of gamification in preclinical histological study environment at the University of Eastern Finland.
We’ve got the skills and the will to utilize the newest technologies at Kaarniranta Lab. We’re always looking for new methods to aid us in our research efforts. Dreaming of the future advancements in life sciences, and technology in general, keeps us going strong.
We got together to celebrate the sweet, sweet fruits of yet another big team effort. It was a nice chance to lubricate our stiffened jaws with some much-needed face-to-face communication.
