Jolan Theriault wins the Raja Rosenbluth Award for Women in Biological Sciences!
An award is offered annually by Raja Rosenbluth for a female graduate student studying in the field of Biological Sciences. This award is in honour of Raja Rosenbluth's long career in the area of Biological Sciences, and recognizes her research, mentorship and guidance of many graduate students with whom she worked.
