Congrats to Lisa, Nushrat and Taylor on their graduation as part of the Barnard Class of 2019!
Lisa earned her BA in Neuroscience & Biology, Nushrat earned her BA in Biology, and Taylor earned her BA in Biology. They are the first graduating members of the Pischedda Lab!
I was featured in the First-Gen Faculty Spotlight on Barnard's Student Success Blog. Fun fact: I was the first in my family to go to college!
Today Abby was honored by Con Edison for receiving a grant from the Con Edison Summer Internship Program to conduct her SRI research.
I was interviewed by Ed Yong for an article in The Atlantic on PLoS Biology's new policy to publish papers that have been "scooped" in the last 6 months. My thoughts: it's great for researchers at smaller schools like Barnard.
