San Antonio native excited to present before top leaders

Katie Serafine, finishing a Ph.D. at American University in Washington, D.C., is a San Antonio native who attended Communication Arts High School at Taft High School. She is jazzed to return home for her third year at the addiction research conference. "Last year it was extremely exciting for me to give a talk to people who are principal investigators in the field I'm entering," she said. "People listened to my work and gave feedback afterward."

Serafine met Dr. France at the conference and will join his lab as a postdoctoral fellow later this spring. "Having met him there, it was easy for me to feel comfortable contacting him when I was looking for a job," she said. "I will work on one of his existing grants in my first year and then hopefully have the opportunity to write my own grant in year two."

Serafine attended Norwich University in Vermont before graduate school at American. Her family lives in Helotes, a San Antonio suburb. They're very excited she is coming home to do her postdoctoral fellowship.

Interactions eliminate tunnel vision

"The other thing that really struck me about the conference that made me come back is that it forces groups of individuals to come together," she said. "You can get tunnel vision in the middle of a project because you're so focused on what you're doing. At international conferences you stay in your respective groups. A place like this, where you can interact with psychologists, pharmacologists and chemists, forces you to address certain angles of your work that you perhaps haven't considered. That's how good research continues through conversation and collaboration."
