Double Congrats to Eli Olson (Raghavan Lab)!

A double congrats is owed to Eli Olson (Raghavan Lab) who has accepted an instructor position in Developing Future Biologists (DFB)! The educational outreach organization is led by graduate students and postdocs at the University of Michigan whose mission is to to ensure that the next generation of biologists, regardless of race, gender, or socioeconomic status, can learn the core concepts of developmental biology and are made aware of the vast opportunities that exist to pursue a career in the sciences.

Additionally, Eli has accepted a position in the pilot cohort of the Pedagogy of Interdisciplinary Science Education (POISE) training program, a unique professional development program that provides a curated series of pedagogy training sessions steeped in graduate-level, interdisciplinary science. POISE is part of a partnership between the School of Education, Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT), Center for Academic Innovation (CAI), the Program in the Biomedical Sciences (PIBS), and the Office of Graduate and Post-doctoral Studies (OGPS) and made possible by funding from the UMMS Research | Innovation | Scholarship | Education (RISE) program.

Well done! Your hard work and determination have paid off. We're all so proud of you, Eli! Congrats!
