Genetics Special Talk: Career Story with Dr. Natalie Cain

February 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

Scientists are storytellers–or at least they should be! Join us on Monday, Feb. 17 at noon in 1360 Genetics/Biotech for a talk by Dr. Natalie Cain, Scientific Editor at Cell Press. Originally from Green Bay, Wisconsin, Dr. Cain earned her Bachelor of Science with Honors in Research in Genetics from UW-Madison in 2004. Her undergraduate thesis work was performed in Michael Culbertson’s lab studying the role of UPF2 in Nonsense Mediated mRNA Decay (NMD). She received her Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2011, where she studied the regulation of the general amino acid permeate GAP1 in yeast, under Chris Kaiser. As an American Cancer Society postdoctoral fellow with Daniel Starr at UC Davis, she studied mechanisms of nuclear positioning in the nematode C. elegans. To hear more about her career and how to get into scientific publishing and editing, please attend! Faculty are also encouraged to sign up to meet with her during her visit. Hosted by Ahna Skop (skop@wisc.edu).
