Everyday that she spends teaching students about science in this transformative environment helps her remember that science is fun. She loves sharing the journey of discovery with students of all ages. Latasha has lead the efforts in establishing this community laboratory model, and hopes to build on its success in other communities. Her research aims to understand how the immune response distinguishes harm from benefit e.
She has a focus on using her research to help develop tools to improve patient diagnosis and management. Sheena is passionate about communicating her research with the public and her public engagement work is very closely linked to her research. She also co-developed a UK nationwide citizen science project to understand allergies and the impacts of pollution BritainBreathing. Part 1: A question that Laura Spink asked her parents as a kid comes up again when her own child begins to ask similar questions.
Part 2: After Denise Coberley brings up her doubt in the Bible to her adoptive religious parents, she finds herself on a journey of self-discovery.

Crossing the Line
She is also the proud mom of an amazing 7-year old son. Denise Coberley has been a science educator for twenty-three years. Her acceptance to the graduate program at Greenlee School of Journalism at Iowa State University allowed her to reconnect with her academic roots. She studies the role of nerves in the respiratory system and how they might hold the key to understanding diseases like asthma and COPD.
When not researching or writing long lists of self-describing adjectives she runs the science communication and outreach initiatives: taste of science — a science festival for adults, and a podcast called 2Scientists. She also enjoys running on trails and glasses of red wine, but not usually at the same time. She is currently at the University of Heidelberg in Germany.
Part 1: Ralph Bouquet goes off script during a psychology research study with uncomfortable and revealing consequences. Part 2: Ali Mustafa finds that the scars of war stay with him even at his new job in the lab.
Before NOVA, Ralph taught high school biology and chemistry in Philadelphia and then spent some time in ed-tech at a Boston-based startup. Ralph received his B. Ali Mustafa is an undergrad student for a second degree at Boise State University, in the Material Science and Engineering program, expected graduation is spring Ali has joined the magnetic shape memory alloys research team at Boise State University, in February , and he had been assigned for the crystal growth research team using Bridgman method to grow Ni Mn Ga single crystal.
Part 1: The lessons that Margaret Rubega learns from her dad about fighting back are put to the test when he becomes the one she must stand up to. Part 2: In following her dream of studying chemistry, Charlotte Istance-Tamblin sees how to break the toxic patterns in her relationships.
She has spent her career studying a diverse array of birds, with a consistent interest in answering the questions: How Does That Work? She started her career getting crapped on in a tern colony, then studied a bird that's famous for going in circles.
Hiding the Decline: Part II
Those formative experiences probably explain a lot about her subsequent career. She's always been especially interested in feeding in birds the way they're built, the mechanics, the food -- because a bird that isn't fed is a bird that's dead. As the Connecticut State Ornithologist, she's had to counsel a lot of homeowners about whether woodpeckers are eating their houses they aren't , and talk to a lot of journalists. Hoping to get better at it, via the log-in-your-own-eye method, she has taught science communication and writing classes along with biology classes for the last 10 years.
She currently leads an National Science Foundation-funded research group studying methods of training graduate science students to talk and write for non-scientists. You can find her on Twitter profrubega chatting about birds with students and others in her birdclass. She hopes to develop a deeper understanding of radiochemistry before moving into teaching at the academic level.
Outside of university she enjoys roller derby and travelling with her wife where ever they are able to. Part 2: When Guizella Rocabado leaves her home in Bolivia to pursue her education in the United States, her plan hits an unexpected snag.
