Last November, I was able to attend the National Science Policy Network Symposium in Madison, Wisconsin. The goal of this two-day symposium was to understand how many scientific issues (such as climate change and genome-based medicine) disproportionately affect minority and vulnerable populations. One of the workshops I attended discussed how “big genomic data” is handled, […]
Picking a thesis lab can be a daunting task. To increase the likelihood of a positive Ph.D. experience, most programs require students to test the water through rotations. I can’t speak to the structure of other programs, but in the Cellular and Molecular Medicine program, we have a class dedicated to professors and their research. […]

A high-speed photograph of a bullet exploding through lipstick. A photomicrograph of dishwashing liquid and water. A scanning electron microscope video of genetically engineered T cells fighting lymphoblastic leukemia. What do all of these have in common? These are all images that have made the invisible visible.
