Pandemic has changed our daily lives in all aspects. University and scientific laboratories have not been an exemption to this. From complete shutdown in the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, to various limitations such as social distancing, wearing face masks and face shields (everyone knows about goggle fogs!), decreased personnel capacity in the lab, and online meetings, our labs at Drexel Nanomaterials group have faced many challenges. Despite all these, our MXene discovery journey has continued at an exceptional pace in this challenging times.
