Tags: kristal gant, patankar lab, ERP, reproductive sciences

Kristal Gant, PhD candidate in the UW Endocrinology and Reproductive Physiology program and researcher in the Patankar Lab, has launched a new initiative to support underrepresented minority students pursuing doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields!

Gant founded STEMming PhorwarD to highlight the stories and expertise of underrepresented minorities working on advanced degrees in STEM after speaking to undergraduate students who had “never seen someone that looked like them pursuing a doctorate.” Their goal is to motivate and inspire younger generations to pursue their STEM goals.
