As part of the 10th-anniversary celebration of Ciencia Puerto Rico, we have been collecting anecdotes from our volunteers to celebrate them and the work they do. We also want to share with you the team's vision for CienciaPR.
Today we will share the story of Marla S. Rivera-Oliver from Arecibo. She has been a volunteer with CienciaPR for a year and a half.
- How did you hear about CienciaPR?
I've always been aware of science in Puerto Rico. During an internet search, I discovered CienciaPR back when it was just starting. I created my account then and I have been aware of all the news that have been published since.
Para obtener un mayor provecho a nuestro alrededor es necesario entender y comprender la materia y todo lo que nos rodea. Por esta razón que el implementar formas para obtener data es crucial para los investigadores y para el crecimiento del mundo. NanoSIMS es solo una de las maneras que el ser humano ha desarrollado para entender la materia.
Marla Rivera-Oliver, a graduate student at the Institute of Neurobiology of the University of Puerto Rico, was selected to present her research in the oral Neuroscience session at the Southeast Regional IDeA conference in Biloxi, MS (Nov 11-13, 2015). Marla’s presentation, "The Modulatory Effects of Caffeine on the Intrinsic Properties of Spinal Lateral Motoneurons", a collaboration with Yocasta Alvarez-Bagnarol and her research mentor Dr. Manuel Diaz-Rios, received a commemorative certificate and a $500 award. She was the only neuroscience graduate student to be selected for an oral presentation.
We are proud of Marla, who is also a volunteer with CienciaPR. Congratulations!
