Research redirected

With the pandemic, some CBS labs shifted course in 2020 to focus on COVID-19 related questions.

The onset of COVID-19 pandemic changed the world as we know it. Research in CBS labs changed course, too. For many labs it meant delayed experiments or cancelled field seasons. It meant additional time to write and analyze, but less time to gather new data. 

Panel Discussion with Phytograds Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee

The Phytograds Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee invites you to participate in a panel discussion on the intersection of STEM graduate student power and minoritized status. We will invite three panelists to discuss how race, gender, and disability status affect the realized power grads have in determining the paths of their academic and research careers. We hope all of you will join us for this important conversation.

An education in inclusion

The Inclusive Science Education Fellows provides graduate students and postdocs with skills to make their classrooms and labs more inclusive. 

Graduate students and postdocs play pivotal roles in undergraduate education, yet they often receive far less support for developing skills in teaching and mentoring than their faculty counterparts.
