National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Winner: Meet Diana
Say hello to Diana, another winner from SBU for this years National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship! Diana’s work focuses on developing the next generation of lithium-ion batteries, but she is interested in all alternative energies and technologies.
EDUCATION: B.S. in Chemistry from Elmira College; currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Stony Brook University with the Takeuchi Research Group
National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Winner: Meet Katherine
Say hello to Katherine! A foodie, fencer, and fellowship winner for this year’s National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship! Keep reading to learn more about her work on cell and organ regeneration!
EDUCATION: B.S. in Biology with a developmental genetics specialization from Stony Brook University. This Fall I will be starting a Ph.D. at Northwestern University in the Interdisciplinary Biological Sciences program.
RESEARCH: I am interested in studying stem cell biology, specifically their roles in animal development and in organ regeneration.
National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Winner: Meet Gabrielle
Say hello to Gabrielle! One of the many winners of the National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship, Gabrielle works to better human’s understanding of lymphomas by developing a gene-editing system that could prevent their development.
EDUCATION: B.S in Biochemistry at Stony Brook; starting a Ph.D. at Rockefeller University in the Fall.
RESEARCH INTERESTS: Viral evolution and innate immunity against viruses.
FUTURE GOALS:My immediate goal is to get my Ph.D. and after that I plan to continue doing research. I’d love to do a post-doc at a place like the National Institute of Health (NIH).
STEM Moms: Sindhuja
Mother’s Week is still going strong with this post about Sindhuja, an engineer with a passion for images. Say hello to the woman who is helping us start a Grad Moms (not just STEM!) Group at Stony Brook.
STEM Moms: Meet Taylor
In honor of the women who fed and housed us before we were even born, we are turning Mother’s Day into Mother’s Week! For the rest of the week we will be posting about the amazing women at SBU who research all day and raise children all night. Our first STEM Mom is Taylor Medwig-Kinney, whose research on cell fate determination and development can help humans better understand evolution and how disease affects development.
Women in Science & Medicine: Meet Margaret
This Saturday, May 11th, SBU’s Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) will be hosting its First Annual Northeast Regional Symposium for Advocates of Women in Science and Medicine! To help kick off the event, we decided to interview the woman behind it all, Margaret Shevik, who wants to inspire other women in her field to pursue careers in science and medicine.
EDUCATION: B.S. in Genetics, Cell Biology, and Development, University of Minnesota College of Biological Sciences; B.A. in Art History, University of Minnesota College of Liberal Arts, MD/Ph.D. candidate in Pharmacology, student in the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) at Stony Brook University
Thank You for the Outstanding Organization Award
Last night. at the Jerrold L. Stein Student Life Awards, GWiSE won the Outstanding Organization Award for going above and beyond to engage graduate students outside the classroom.
Thank You SBU Grads, You Really Showed Up for the Showcase
First and foremost, we would like to thank everyone who joined us earlier this month to celebrate and support the the amazing research being done by the amazing scientists here at Stony Brook University. It is through events like these that we can further our cause of promoting women scientists in science and engineering. We had a great turnout this year and we hope to see everyone at future events!
