AIBS recognizes diversity in the biological sciences
Date:5/15/2009

Washington, DC. The American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS) is committed to increasing participation in the biological sciences of individuals from traditionally underrepresented groups, including women, minorities, and persons with disabilities. Each year through the Diversity Scholars and Diversity Leadership Awards, AIBS recognizes the academic achievements of students from these groups, or a program dedicated to broadening participation in the biological sciences. The AIBS Board of Directors and Awards Committee are pleased to announce the 2009 honoree:

  • Diversity Scholar: Danielle N. Lee, PhD student, University of Missouri-St. Louis.

Danielle N. Lee is a candidate for the doctor of philosophy degree in biological sciences at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. Lee's current research is an examination of individual differences and behavioral syndromes. Her dissertation is titled "Individual differences in exploratory behavior of prairie voles, Microtus ochogaster". Lee is an active member of the Animal Behavior Society (ABS), including ABS's Education and Diversity Committees. Her interest in outreach to under-served groups, particularly African-Americans, includes mentoring undergraduate and high school students and participating in after-school science programs. Lee also authors a science blog geared to young people from the inner-city about urban ecology and environmental science. Her blog, Urban Science Adventures!, may be viewed at http://urban-science.blogspot.com/. Lee's research awards include grants and fellowships from the National Science Foundation, American Society of Mammalogists, and Sigma Xi. Lee will complete her degree program in 2009 and plans to pursue an academic career that emphasizes science outreach and participation of under-served audiences.
