Our graduate students lead the effort to virtualize the Princeton PhD Interview Weekend

February 5, 2021

Meeting the challenge of providing prospective PhD students with a genuine (and useful) interview experience, Will, Matt, Katelyn, and Tim volunteered on the organizing committee, and Michelle and Cora also participated throughout the weekend. Our graduate students collaborated with others across the department to design, plan, and coordinate virtual events like group trivia, Gathertown socials, technologies seminars, and virtual resources that encouraged organic interactions during an otherwise virutal weekend.

Xinlei and Cora are selected to speak at ASCB's Cell Bio Virtual 2020

Xinlei and Cora will both be discussing how human pathogens manipulate mitochondrial organization and function to acheive infection. As a virtual conference this year, the American Society for Cell Biology's Annual Meeting is accessible to almost anyone - tune in if you're interested!

Laura, Katelyn, & Tim work with our Molecular Biology Outreach Program to launch a science communication website

November 9, 2020
Laura, Katelyn, & Tim - each chairs on our Molecular Biology Outreach Program (MBOP - previously known as GMOP) executive board - have been working hard with other MolBio graduate students to construct a website well-suited for virtual programming of science outreach and communication. Goals include accessible at-home workshops, dissemination of scientific information, and especially highlighting the diverse backgrounds and strengths of scientists, both at Princeton and around the world.
