Backup Care Now Available for All Graduate Students with Care.com

Care.com, a family care service that can assist students with backup care and finding caregivers, is now available to all degree-seeking graduate students at Brown. A Care.com premium membership includes access to a database of providers for a child, an elderly adult, home, pet, or tutoring. There is no cost to find care providers on the self-service site. Students can identify prospective caregivers and then discuss the cost of care directly with them.

Eligible graduate students can also take advantage of subsidized backup care for in-home or in-center childcare. Backup care is charged at a subsidized rate of $4.00/hour for in-home care and $10 per child per day at a child care center. Brown will cover five days of backup per calendar year.Questions? Learn more at 美狮彩票网首页brown.edu/go/care and signup at browngradfamilies.care.com.

Campbell Named in List of 100 Inspiring Black Scientists

As part of a celebration for Black History month, CrossTalk, a blog from Cell Press, named Dean Andrew G. Campbell as one of 100 inspiring black scientists in America. The list includes established investigators that range from tenure track assistant professors to associate and full professors, as well as scientists the organization considers rising stars. "Our hope is that this resource will have a significant and long-lasting effect on all members of the scientific community and continue to emphasize the need for diversity in the academy," says their website. Cell Press is a publisher of cutting-edge biomedical and physical science research and reviews.

For first-year graduate students in neuroscience, a ‘magical science space’

thumbnail image

Through an immersive eight-day workshop at the Marine Biological Lab, graduate students gain hands-on neuroscience experience and form connections.

Meghan Gonsalves, a first-year neuroscience graduate student at Brown University, spends most of her time studying imaging techniques used to measure brain activity in humans. So when she was asked to dissect the brain of a fruit fly — which is roughly the size of a poppy seed — she thought she wouldn’t be able to do it. By later on the same January day, Gonsalves found herself gazing in awe at a video of a glowing fly brain. She had stained and imaged the brain using a confocal microscope to visualize neurons that affect fly behavior. 

“To be able to manipulate your data through a microscope is pretty crazy,” said Gonsalves, who holds both bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Brown as well. “I was really nervous doing this because I’m computational/behavioral-oriented. This shows I’m capable of doing more than I thought I was capable of.” Read more.

Allison Pappas, doctoral candidate in the History of Art and Architecture received a Research Support Grant from the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art. She is currently in England, visiting collections in London, Cambridge, and Bradford, to complete archival work for the first chapter of her dissertation, which focuses on the development of the paper photography process in England amongst a community of scientists investigating light, chemistry and optics, among many other subjects. She highlights the language used to describe this new medium, namely the "impression," and the way it shifts between associations with empirical theories of perception and printed images. The chapter is titled Photography's First Impressions: W.H.F Talbot, J.F.W. Herschel, and Experimental Rhetoric.
