Summer update: newly-minted PhDs and newly-minted grad students!

After a long hiatus on the part of this blog-writer, the Brown-NIH GPP blog will now be updated regularly! Expect some updates from the 2016-2017 academic year and new content as it (hopefully) comes hot off the (literal) presses!

First, congratulations to our program’s newest PhDs, Catherine Hegarty, Dani Rubinstein, and Rahilla Tarfa, who all received their doctoral diplomas on Sunday, May 28, 2017. Dani and Catherine will be wrapping up their current work in Karen Berman’s lab as postdoctoral appointees . Taking her neuroscience expertise to medicine, Rahilla will begin her MD at University of Pittsburgh this fall.

Next, welcome to the newest class of the Brown-GPP! Roberto Aponte-Rivera joins us from University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras;
Claire Gao will be joining from University of California, Berkeley;
Kevin Keary joins us from University of Connecticut;
Jeffrey Mercurio joins us from Stockton University; and
