Where Are They Now?

New Voices for Research would not have such an incredible archive of posts if it wasn't for the talented writers who have lent us their voices. As part of our blogoversary celebration, we're taking a look at where this year's contributors are now.

(alphabetically by last name)

Matt Hanzlik is back at the University of Minnesota for his senior year, and working as the conference manager for the Minnesota Parkinson’s Disease Forum. He’s still engaged with the Student Society for Stem Cell Research and being an advocate.

Rasika Kalamegham joined Friends of Cancer Research as a science policy analyst, and is based in the DC metro area.

Hillary Lewis
is working for the district attorney’s office in Brownsville, Texas.

Jackie Maffucci's last day is today, and you can read her sign-off post on Monday.

Susan Maya
is a clinical research coordinator at MGH Neurology in Boston, Massachusetts and is in the process of applying to medical schools.

Emily Norton stayed in the DC area and is a research analyst in the environmental health solutions group at The Cadmus Group, Inc., an environmental consulting firm that works primarily with the EPA. She’s focusing mainly on indoor air quality and its effects on health, such as asthma and lung cancer from radon. Not far from her series on climate change and health!

Ilse Peterson is continuing down the science policy road and is starting a job that will deal with a wide range of policy issues. She is excited to be staying in DC and plans to stay connected to New Voices.

Takao Yamada is in his second year of law school at Georgetown University in Washington, DC.

Emily Connelly and I will be continuing on, and we look forward to working with another amazing group of New Voices in 2010. If you're interested in being part of the New Voices team or a guest blogging opportunity, please let us know!
