Graduate student Kuan-lin Huang defended his thesis, "Multi-omics Portraits of Cancer" on Thursday, February 22. During his defense party, friends and colleagues admired his intellect, hard work, and ability to survive near-death experiences in completely avoidable situations. Kuan's Earth-friendly legacy will continue in the form of re-useable containers and the quest to never let free food go to waste. Congratulations, Kuan!
