Faculty members John Russell, PhD (left), professor of developmental biology and associate dean for graduate education for the Division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences (DBBS), and Scott Hultgren, PhD, the Helen L. Stoever Professor of Molecular Microbiology, talk with Tracey Hermanstyne (center), a graduate student at the University of Maryland, Baltimore; Tiffany Walker, a graduate student at Meharry Medical College; and Antony Schwartz, a graduate student at the University of Southern Mississippi, in the Farrell Learning and Teaching Center atrium during the Diversity Research Scholars Visit April 29. The two-day event, hosted by DBBS and the Office of Post Graduate Affairs, brought 19 prospective postdoctoral research scholars to Washington University for a recruiting visit. A grant from the university’s Coordinating Council for Diversity Initiatives funded the event, which included lectures from faculty, informal discussions and a poster session.
