Farewell Kilmer!

What a year it’s been! We celebrated a year with Kilmer as he heads back to Brazil. It’s been a crazy, challenging year, but we’ve learned so much about bees and their gut microbes. Thank you and all the best Kilmer!

Great job to the whole team and special shout-outs to David and Ryan for leading this work!
