The Winners of the iBiology Young Scientist Seminars 2016
A partnership of the Lasker Foundation, the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University, and iBiology
These four winners will attend the three-day workshop at the UCSF iBiology headquarters May 24-27, 2016. Immediately following the workshop, they will record their 30-minute talks in our green screen studio. These talks will be posted on iBiology.org as part of this new video series that will showcase the work of young scientists.
Eric Hamilton is a graduate student at Elizabeth Haswell’s lab at Washington University where he studies the mechanism of how plant pollination occurs.
Julie Huang is going to present her doctorate work at Stanford University where she studies how the pathogen H. pylori survives in the stomach.
Mohit Jolly studies cancer metastasis through computational biology. He joined Dr. Herbert Levine at Rice University in Texas for his PhD where he studies the intrinsic characteristics that make cancer metastasize.
Michele LeRoux is a postdoctoral associate at MIT. She will present her graduate work at the Molecular and Cellular Biology Department at University of Washington, where she studied bacterial social behavior and interspecies warfare.
This project is funded by the Lasker Foundation, which also sponsors the prestigious Lasker Awards for distinguished scientists and clinicians, and the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science, a leading organization in teaching scientists to communicate effectively.
