Bianca Brown gives a lab tour to students from RISD, January 2020.
Bianca Brown -- Ph.D. candidate, NSF Graduate Research Fellow, microbiomics extraordinaire -- recently invited 22 undergraduate students from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) to tour the lab. Bianca gave a lecture on strategies for using art to communicate science. The group discussed several ongoing projects in the Kartzinel Lab as examples of how art can be used to better aid the public's understanding and engagement in science. Bianca led students on lab tour where they learned about how we get DNA out of animal dung and blood samples in the course of our work. The Brown-RISD connection is a unique and special part of living and working in Providence.
