*Roughly once per month, the lab uses group meeting to talk about issues related to DEI both in and outside of science. These topics and days/times are posted internally. Let us know if you'd like to join!
*Shelly is co-PI of the UMass NIH PREP program, which is an excellent mechanism to recruit the next generation of top scientists into the biomedical field. Please email Shelly if you are or know a great student for this program! Applications are typically due on April 15th.
