Golden Pipette won by Dr Wenson Karunakaran

Congratulations to Dr Wenson Karunakaran! 

It was tough competition for the sixth Golden Pipette at the Cambridge-Leuven joint lab retreat. The final prize had to go to Dr Karunakaran for his work on brain CD4 T cells.

Many neuroscientists assume there are no CD4 T cells inside the healthy brain, but there are in fact around 5000 per gram of brain tissue. How do we know? Wenson imaged and counted them, one by one. 

That is what it takes to win the Golden Pipette.
