Abstract

Winning the American Society for Cell Biology’s Women in Cell Biology Mid-career Award is incredibly meaningful to me, as it validates that someone focusing on engineering and applications can be a “real” cell biologist, too. Single-minded devotion to studying a particular biological process is not a prerequisite for a career in science and academia. The more diverse the scientific styles and demographics of scientists who feel welcome, the stronger science will be.
