Dear all of you!

And once again I have every reason to be proud of K2 employees: after all the celebrations last week, Eva Gerdts was last night also awarded the Helse Vest Research award 2021! Congratulations on another well-deserved award!

But she is not the only one from K2 who can be congratulated: At the annual conference of the Scandinavian Society for Immunology (SSI) last week in Aarhus, Kate Frøland from Broegelmann Research Laboratory was appointed as an honorary member. For decades, she has been indispensable to the editorial board of the journal “Scandinavian Journal of Immunology”, which is the journal affiliated with SSI. Congratulations!

Otherwise, I would like to thank all of you who have helped and supported me as acting head of department in recent months. It has been very nice to be the leader of so many clever and enthusiastic (and sometimes a little demanding 😉) people! From Monday (1 November) Pål is back as leader, welcome again!

Have a really good Halloween weekend!
