Dr. Shana Stoddard, assistant professor of chemistry and director for student mentoring at Rhodes College, is featured in the April/May issue of ASBMB Today about inspiring students to engage in transformative research that extends beyond the classroom.
ASBMB Today is a news magazine published by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. “Research in Stoddard’s lab is diverse due to her numerous passions, ranging from protein structure modeling and analysis to developing novel therapies for autoimmune disorders such as primary membranous nephritis, or PMN, an incurable, kidney-specific condition that can lead to end-stage renal disease,” notes writer Nicole Lynn.
Stoddard established the STEM Cohort Mentoring program at Rhodes in 2017 to support the needs of students from diverse backgrounds pursuing majors or careers in STEM. Students participate in workshops and professional development opportunities and receive support to foster their excellence while at Rhodes and beyond.
