3:15-4:30pm: Seminar with refreshments
A special thanks to our co-sponsor: POWER (Postdoctoral Organization for Women Engaged in Research)
Join us for a seminar with Dr. Allyson Evans, MIT alum and Senior Scientific Editor at Molecular Cell, on empowering women in the field of scientific editing and communication.
Allyson has been an editor with Cell Press at Molecular Cell since 2010. She received her Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill where she studied mechanisms of neuronal apoptosis, followed by postdoctoral work at MIT examining the roles of Sirtuins in aging and disease with Dr. Leonard Guarente. As an editor, the best part of her day is flipping through the newly submitted papers over a cup of coffee. She doesn’t mind that her “Eureka!” moments are now lived vicariously through others, and is passionate that science is seen as fashionable and mainstream by future generations.
