“From my very first day in Nisha's lab, I was immediately struck by her respect for me as a meaningful contributor to her research program....I quickly developed confidence and a sense of belonging in translational research because a respected faculty member believed in me and invested her time (and that of the members of her laboratory) in, not just training me, but mentoring me through the project. [This] experience in Nisha's laboratory came at a critical time for me....and ... allowed me to 'hit the ground running' early in my PhD training.”
