The 2016 class of Yale Ciencia Academy fellows is a very diverse group. They come from 21 institutions in Puerto Rico and across the U.S. and their research interests span fields as varied as microbiology, genetics and genomics, cancer biology, HIV, epidemiology, and psychology and behavioral science. Most of them are interested in careers in academia, but many are also interested in exploring a range of career options. One thing they have in common is their commitment to defining their professional goals and aspirations, acquiring skills and knowledge that will help them in their professional path, and sharing their knowledge and insight as scientists with others through communication, mentoring and outreach.
