Merry Christmas from the Finlay Lab

(Or…MADNESS (?), MERRIMENT (!), and MARIO (^^))

A bit of Christmastime cheer from the friendly Finlay team. Stay tuned for more posts and video blogs in 2020. Until then, wishing you all a most wonderful time of the year. To those far from home–sending lots of love! And to all the industrious scientists–may your experiments and data analyses bring good news this season!

“Festive bay walls
Busy lab halls
Dressed in holiday style
In the air
There’s a feeling
Of Christmas…”

A story of challenge, community, and collaboration…a research tale for Christmas!

Happy exploring–peace & goodwill,

KC Skope

Hello! My name is KCBauer and I am a PhD candidate at the University of British Columbia. I am a researcher, writer, musician, and explorer. Originally from Washington DC, I graduated with a BA in Music and BS in Biology in 2014. This blog focuses on the gut microbiota, the trillions of microorganisms that reside along the digestive tract. My grad research at UBC examines the role of the gut microbiota on human health, brain development, and anthropology. When I am not in the lab, I enjoy ambling through Vancity, listening to music, reading science journals, and hiking. If you have questions, ideas for blog topics, suggestions for place to visit in BC, or corrections send me an email at
