As the Immunology alumni came to campus to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their graduate program, they also came to give back to current trainees -- of their time, advice and resources. In two well-attended alumni career panels, one for academic careers and the other for industry and other careers, alumni described life after Stanford.
Promoting diversity and advancing racial equity in the biomedical sciences
Is a "committment to diversity" enough in biomedical sciences? Kenneth Gibbs, PhD '10 writes an article in American Society for Cell Biology on racial justice.
We can in fact make substantive progress on the pressing issues of diversity and racial justice in science if there is the will to do so.
Gibbs is Director of the Postdoctoral Research Associate Training Proram at the National Institute of General Medical Sciences.
Biosciences & engineering faculty tell stories about the real world of research
Faculty members speak about their sense of passion, experience with adversity, and rise against setbacks at the Awesome Science Symposium.
Difficulties shape us, and no matter how hard they are, we learn from them.
Juliana Idoyaga, PhD, Assistant Professor of Microbiology & Immunology

Devavani Chatterjea, PhD, 2001 left Genentech to return to a university setting and run her own research lab. She never imagined that she would identify a possible cause of a rare disorder that had puzzled gynecologists for years.
I have always been open to studying anything that sparks my interest.
Devavani built networks and professional collaborations to advance her career.
