We are immensely grateful to our Comm Lab alumni, who’ve brought us their passion for science communication and their deep motivation to serve their community. Thank you for your creativity in problem solving, your technical rigor in developing new resources, and the impact you’ve made for the students and postdocs who are now in the next phase of their professional lives.

Some of our alumni have chosen to continue coaching beyond their official time with the Comm Lab, and currently form the Fellow Reserve. The Fellow Reserve is “deployed” during times of high demand.

Coaching is not about you, it’s about empowering the client. These interactions keep me humble and grounded.
