Here we can wax nostalgic about the lab's history and give a little perspective to the current admins. From this perhaps we can all gain a little perspective into the history and long term goals of the program, and appreciate the distance it has come in a short history.
State of the Lab
In this series we summarize the state of the lab and the major events that happened year-by-year. This functions as an overview of the major responsibilities, new technology and equipment, and major changes to the lab. Each year ends at the end of that school year (for example 2009 ends in June 2009).
