The Tucker Lab turns 1!

9/20/2022: It has been one year since the Tucker lab started. We celebrated at Wilson's Orchard. It was a perfect day, and our honorary lab member, Lu, was the life of the party! So grateful to have these people on my team.

This year's Immunology Program retreat was fantastic. Proud PI seeing Ariana present her hard work!
