Superheroes of Science Gets a Reboot:
Superheroes of Science was given a reboot last month with a new platform and some new crew members! Now featuring an interview platform, SOS aim is to ensure that our community is aware of the science that is going on around them and how it may apply to their own lives. We want to give a huge shout out to Casey Starke for being willing to be our first guest in 2 years since this platform debuted. For those who missed the in person event, stay tuned for the recording that will debut on Facebook live with a live Q & A opportunity to be announced.
We have to give a big shout out to our now former employee Chloe Martinez for her new position at Atlas Genomics as a Molecular Technician! Chloe has been with RAIN for just over 3 years and was a major contributor on many of our projects, probably most notably on the RAIN sewage monitoring team. She will definitely be missed and very difficult to replace, but nonetheless we cannot express how happy we are here for you Chloe. We are still your RAIN family!
