Anna Perry was awarded the UC Davis College of Biological Sciences Dean’s Mentorship Award for Undergraduate Research in spring 2016. Anna has mentored 42(!) undergraduates during her time in the Patricelli Lab; this award reflects her exceptional skill, patience, and dedication in helping each of these students reach their potential. Anna also received a Professors for the Future (PFTF) fellowship. The PFTF program is a competitive, year-long fellowship designed to recognize and develop the academic leadership skills of outstanding graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. As a PFTF fellow (2015-2016), Anna developed a workshop series to teach both graduate and postdoctoral mentors strategies for providing effective feedback on undergraduate scientific writing. While working to enhance the professional development of her colleagues, Anna also received formal training in course design and teaching methods through a seminar on College Teaching. Congrats, Anna!
