A scientist in the Cancer Program who wants to help your science get noticed
Rita joined the Broad two years ago after a fulfilling postdoc at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, where she conducted research on gastrointestinal and esophageal cancers. She is currently a member of the KRAS team in the Cancer Program. Rita believes that, to be a successful storyteller, you must not only captivate your audience at the outset, but also maintain their attention throughout your story – whether you are telling your family about your day at work, or describing the analysis of high throughput global chromatin profiling to a fellow scientist. In addition, she is particularly interested in the process of re-inventing and tailoring a story in order to engage different – and sometimes scientifically naïve – audiences.
