ISL Affiliate Michelle Parvatiyar Awarded McKnight Junior Faculty Fellowship awarded by The Florida Education Fund as part of their initiative to encourage exceptional teaching and research by faculty historically underrepresented in academia.

“This award has allowed me to increase my bandwidth and focus exclusively on developing research and providing training and mentorship for graduate and undergraduate students working in my laboratory,” Parvatiyar said. “The timing is excellent since the pandemic eroded resources, interpersonal connections and collaborations that are incredibly important when establishing a research program.”
