Her research accomplishments, as well as her loyalty and dedication to her trainees, have made her a highly sought after mentor by young scientists from all over the world. She leads by example and has created an environment in her laboratory and community of past trainees that fosters scientific exploration, career development, and a cooperative spirit.
