This summer, the Summons Lab welcomed two visiting students, Nan Sun and Yongli Li, from the University of Science and Technology of China.

After weeks of labwork and analyses, the two presented their summer work to the lab group. Nan worked closely with Gareth Izon, and presented her research titled “Questioning the Paradigm of Earth’s Oxygenation.” Yongli worked with Thomas Evans, and presented “Realizing the Full Potential of Intact Polar Lipid Membrane Proxies.” Both student projects yielded fascinating insights!

Following the presentations, all headed to group dinner at MuLan — a Summons Lab tradition — to celebrate a successful summer, Nan and Yongli’s presentations, as well as group member birthdays. A convenient rotating dinner table allowed the group to be captured via video!
