Panelists include:  

  • Stephanie Aktipis, PhD '09, Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Foreign Affairs Officer, US Department of State, Office of Conservation and Water, Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs
  • Karen Mowrer, PhD '08, Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology, Health Science Policy Analyst, National Institute of Mental Health, and former Government Relations Associate, Lewis-Burke Associates LLC.
  • Kate Stoll, PhD '10, Biochemistry (University of Washington), Senior Policy Advisor, MIT Washington Office
