Salk’s education outreach partners with steam leadership series

Salk’s Education Outreach program welcomed 300 high school girls from the San Diego Unified School district for a Women in Biotech lecture on November 17, 2015. The event was part of the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) Leadership series, which focuses on career opportunities within those fields and connects business leaders to local students. The keynote speakers were Tina Nova, president and CEO of Molecular Stethoscope, and Salk’s Janelle Ayres, assistant professor in the Nomis Foundation Laboratories for Immunobiology and Microbial Pathogenesis. Carol Marchetto, a Salk senior staff scientist, and two researchers from the San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research concluded the presentation with a panel discussion.
