UAS alumna Dr. Micaela Martinez was recently awarded the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director’s Early Independence Award of $2M, along with a research position at Princeton University.  Since graduating from UAS in 2009 with a B.S. in Biology and a B.S. in Mathematics, Martinez went on to earn a Ph.D. in 2015 from the University of Michigan Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology. Dr. Martinez is currently a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow in Biology in the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University, and a Postdoctoral Affiliate of the Global Health Program in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public & International Affairs. According to the NIH website, she uses “cutting-edge statistical methods and dynamic models to deconstruct epidemics and reveal information about host-to-host transmission of viral infections, immunity in the population, and vaccine efficacy. She works at the intersection of epidemiology, computational biology, chronobiology (i.e., the study of biological rhythms), and ecology. Her traditional training in biology, coupled with research in computational/applied mathematics and statistical inference, has allowed her to develop a unique expertise: leveraging Big Epidemiological Data to unmask population-level biological processes that impact human health.”  Find out more about Dr. Martinez and her research at https://memartinez.org. Lectures are free and open to the public.  All lectures begin at 7p.m. at the Egan Library. All Evening at Egan lectures are simulcast on UATV Cable Channel 11 or live via Flash streaming video.

The 2nd Annual UAS Power & Privilege Symposium is a one day conference-style teach-in designed to give members of the UAS & Southeast Alaska communities an opportunity to come together and engage in difficult, thoughtful, and honest conversation about the ways social hierarchies and identities manifest themselves in our communities. Discussions include those about race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, age, religion, body size, ability, mental illness, class, and their intersectionalities. The Symposium will include keynote speakers, multiple breakout sessions, and performances. The event is free and open to the public. Registration is encouraged and will be available in October on the event website.Most UAS classes will be cancelled to allow students and faculty the opportunity to attend and/or present at the Symposium. Check your class syllabus or talk with your professors to see if your classes will be cancelled on the day of the event.While the Symposium will be held on the UAS Juneau campus, keynote speeches and a selection of breakout sessions will be available live via distance. Local events will also be occuring at the Sitka & Ketchikan campuses on this day.  Find out more about how to submit a session proposal, who the keynote speakers are, what the schedule for the day looks like, and more at the Symposium website.
