Professor Ethan Shevach of the National Institute of Health in the US kindly opened the new Immunology, Inflammation and Immunotherapy Laboratory for us.

Ethan confessed to a certain amount of envy at the new laboratory! Before unveiling a commemorative plaque, Professor Shevach congratulated the project team on a clever design promoting good scientific interactions before wishing everyone well on this latest stage of our research journey.
