The new Director of Scientific Communications at the American Lung Association is Vince Tedjasaputra, 2019-21 fellow at NSF. "My time as an STPF felllow sharpened my skills in translating science for decision-makers. As a lung disease researcher-turned communications professional, the fellowship gave me the confidence to cold-pitch a job description that matches my skills to an organization aiming to improve engagement with diverse audiences on lung disease research."
Congratulations to Sapana Vora, 2015-17 fellow at the State Department, on her move to the Department of Defense as a biosecurity expert and policy advisor. “Starting in government as a fellow, I had a lot to learn and a lot to prove, and I did both thanks to incredible colleagues across State, the interagency, and international community. It's true the fellowship will take you places, and I'm excited for what's next at DoD!"
