“Honorary Lab Members”

Given our close collaboration with the Nikon-KOKI Microscopy Center, László Barna and Pál Vági have to be mentioned here as “honorary lab members”. Not only is their scientific contribution invaluable in our projects, but they also take active part in the social life of the MNB lab.
