Faculty Spotlight

Meet The 2020 Excellence in Mentoring Award Winners

For Akiva Cohen, PhD, and Joseph Zackular, PhD, recipients of the 2020 Excellence in Mentoring Trainees Award, mentors do more than just advise trainees on their scientific work: They provide a “second family,” a “support system,” and a sounding board for all the questions, quirks, and concerns that no doubt come with a career in academia.

Read the full Q&A here and hear Drs. Cohen and Zackular highlight their work at Faculty Luncheon on January 19 at noon.
