Our research assistant, Camille Paul, has just graduated from Vassar with a degree in neuroscience. She has worked as a researcher for the blog since we started, and has worked as my research assistant before that. Camille has been our backbone and we will miss her terribly, not only for her great research skills, but for the dedication she has shown to the blog for the last year and a half.
Camille, a native of the U.S. Virgin Islands, is moving on to a two-year fellowship at the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston. Joslin, a teaching and research affiliate of Harvard Medical School, is a one-of-a-kind institution on the front lines of the world epidemic of diabetes — leading the battle to conquer diabetes in all of its forms through cutting-edge research and innovative approaches to clinical care and education. It is a measure of Camille’s talent and hard work that she has been chosen for such a prestigious fellowship.
We wish her the best of luck. We will sorely miss her and want to acknowledge her pivotal role in helping make Repeating Islands a success.
