Celebrating Stephanie

On a personal and historical as well as professional note, this week one of my first mentees — starting six years ago when I was still a postdoc in Texas, continuing remotely during my tenure in New York, and wrapping up in my past two years in Sweden — successfully defended her PhD in Biochemistry from Stockholm University.

Many congratulations, Dr Stephanie Heusser; I hope our scientific and spiritual paths continue to intersect for many years to come.
