Trainee Academic Mentoring Award in Basic Science

Krystel R. Huxlin
Huxlin’s mentoring efforts focus on past trainees’ observation on her mentoring style and results, depicting the Meliora spirit.

One trainee states, “Krystel has been a singular force in my life, and the greatest mentor I could have hoped for when I launched my academic career. After over a decade working with Krystel as a trainee in her lab, I have found her mentoring skills, her capacity for empathy, and her selfless promotion of her trainees has only grown. Without question, my scientific career would not exist without her guidance”.
