Research Departments Physiology 20201224 Seasons Greetings
30 November 2020

It has been an unprecedented year! The COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on all of us, on our work and on our home situation. I appreciate everyones flexibility and creativity to deal with this new situaton. Our scientific activities still progressed impressively. Now in the final days of 2020, it’s time for a well-deserved holiday and time to relax, to enjoy the company of close family and friends, to memorize the past year and to make plans for the coming year.

We are looking forward to a great 2021. May it be a year filled with hope and light. A year with more certainties than the past year. Hopefully then, and with the arrival of the COVID-19 vaccine in sight, we will be able to make a good start. That you may reconvene your work refuelled and have a successful start in January. Let's, also in 2021, look after each other, respect each other and let’s stay in contact.

In the coming year we will keep you posted about all the ins and outs of our department and our nice colleagues. You are welcome to visit our website regularly to remain updated.

To start 2021 together, you are all cordially invited for our Online New Years Gathering on Monday 4th of January, 2020 from 08.45-09.15 hrs.

Best regards,

René Bindels
