Leaving the Plaxco Lab

Although, we are sad to see you go, we have created the following procedures to ensure the safety of future members in the lab. This form is also required for you to receive letters of recommendations from K.W. Plaxco. We have found that if you are working at the time you begin to move out, it will take several days to finish this check list. Please plan ahead.
