Neerja Hajela Retires as All-Time LTEE Champion

Neerja Hajela has worked on the LTEE for over 22 years as a technician and lab manager. But alas, she is now retiring. Neerja has kept the lab running in a smooth and orderly fashion. She runs a tight ship in terms of lab safety. She has distributed LTEE samples to dozens of labs around the world. And last, but surely not least, Neerja has done more of the daily transfers of the LTEE lines than anyone else, by a long shot. She did her first LTEE transfer on February 5, 1996, and she’s gone on to perform over 4,200 transfers! The photo shows Neerja pointing at the notebook entries for her first and last transfers. Thank you, Neerja!
