Farewell and thanks to Matthias

Today, we said goodbye to former PhD student and postdoc Matthias. Being only the second-ever PhD student in the Pless lab, he was there from pretty much the beginning and has made a huge contribution to setting up methods and making the lab the place it is today. Not only has he (single-handedly) established high-sensitivity patch-clamp fluorometry, but he has also worked with single channel recordings, FRET, unroofing of mammalian cells etc – and always been a role model in persistence and patience. He will be missed dearly and we wish him all the best for his next move!
