Congratulations, Sam!
(on Sam Wright getting her Ph.D.)

We've worked together for six years
Examining mouse neurons and ears
So thoroughly and with so much care
That the role of otoferlin was laid bare.
Sharing the frustrations and the joys,
Dragged down or lifted as by buoys,
You've been an important part of life.
After you leave who'll take your role?
The work days will have a big hole.
Take care and please keep in touch
Hearing from you will please us much.
