As the lab manager for the Aponte Lab, Sarah is one of the first people new lab personnel meet. She takes new lab members on a tour of the facility and points out emergency exits, eye washes, and fire alarms. Sarah reminds lab members how to properly store and dispose of all chemicals. During the pandemic, she created a COVID-19 channel on Teams to keep everyone up to date on the latest NIH guidelines and regulations. Congratulations, Sarah and thank you for all of your hard work!
