Ready to find out what MSU Denver can do for you? We’ve got you covered.
Thanks to everyone that attended our second annual Women in STEM Conference this year! For anyone that was unable to attend or would simply like to learn more about what we covered, please see the information below. More information will be forthcoming in the spring on the homepage regarding next year’s conference.
This year we were fortunate to have two featured keynote speakers: Dr. Renee Horton, a Material Science Engineer with NASA, and Dr. Karissa Sanbonmatsu, a Principle Investigator at Los Alamos National Laboratory and specialist in the mechanisms of ribosomes, riboswitches, and LncRNAs.
Dr. Horton is the first African American – and first in her family – to earn a doctorate in Material Science from the University of Alabama. You can learn more about her by visiting her website. In addition to her research, Dr. Sanbonmatsu discusses how her gender transition led her down the path to studying epigenetics — how social interactions alter DNA. You can learn more about her work by visiting her website as well.
Our sincerest thanks to Dr. Horton and Dr. Sanbonmatsu for their time and energy!
