Malene Hansen, Ph.D., assistant professor in our Del E. Webb Center for Neuroscience, Aging, and Stem Cell Research and native of Denmark, gave a faculty promotion seminar last week. It was her chance to show off her science and service to a committee that will evaluate her for promotion to associate professor. Check out her lab members in attendance. They’re showing their support with Danish flag scarves! Best of luck to Hansen and her team.
