Because of the new coronavirus the LUMC took measures to prevent spreading of the virus. Many people are working from home because of these measures. For me it means that I am working from home as much as I can. Because my mouse experiments take 18 months I am allowed to go to lab. We have made a schedule which allows a maximum number of people per lab or office.
Working from home is going fine, I can do data analysis and I am writing articles. My student was working in the lab fulltime before the crisis and he has been at home now for several weeks. Lectures are provided online, but it is more difficult to do lab work at home. We are working on shifting his project towards a more data-analysis project so can work from home. In the meantime he is writing a review, so that he can start the next year of his master without a delay.
