Emily Boice

Emily Boice is a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Texas at San Antonio. She works with a number of local institutions on collaborative projects to study the ability of iron nanoparticles in imaging and treating diseases, such as cancer, stroke and burn wounds. Emily also serves as a founding member to her institution's postdoctoral association and strives to enrich the education of all trainees on career paths and STEM outreach. Previously, she was in Richmond, Va., and attended Virginia Commonwealth University graduate school in microbiology and immunology and co-developed the Women in Science association to promote women in STEM fields. Emily earned her bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering at Saint Louis University. This is her second Experimental Biology conference, and the globetrotter is excited to see what this year's events hold! Follow her on Twitter and the Pipette Gazette.
