Rodal named 2013 Pew Scholar

Assistant Professor of Biology Avital Rodal has been named a 2013 Pew Scholar in the Biomedical Sciences. The program “gives innovative scientists both the freedom to take calculated risks and the resources to pursue the most promising, but untried, avenues for scientific breakthroughs”, according to Rebecca W. Rimel, President and CEO of The Pew Charitable Trusts. Rodal has been recognized for her work in understanding the role of membrane deformation and dembrane trafficking in neurons, which evidence is starting to implicate in neurodegenerative disease (Alzheimer’s, ALS).
