Poulikakos Labs celebrated all their accomplishments from the academic year at Gravity Heights! Here’s to many more memories and adventures!
The Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation announced today the selection of its 2022 class of Beckman Young Investigator Awardees from U.S. colleges and universities. The awardees exemplify the Foundation’s mission of supporting the most promising young faculty members in the early stages of their academic careers in the chemical and life sciences, particularly to foster the invention of methods, instruments, and materials that will open new avenues of research in science. They were selected from a pool of over 225 applicants after a three-part review led by a panel of scientific experts. Congratulations Poulikakos Labs!
Anna Nguyen was selected to be a part of the Genentech Scholars program! She will be participating in a 10-week, full-time summer research experience for undergraduates, supported by the Genentech Foundation. We can’t wait to see what she does during the summer and in the future!
In April, Paula presented our current research on colorimetric metasurfaces for tissue diagnostics. She was one of four students selected to be a plenary speaker for the Stanford Research conference out of the 79 student presenters. Well done Paula!
