Anat Belasen joining our lab as a Smith Fellow

The recently announced 2019 Smith Fellows

Congrats to Anat Belasen, who is finishing up her PhD at University of Michigan and will be joining us in August 2019 as a Smith Post-Doctoral Fellow! Her project, “Leveraging the Past to Preserve the Future: Finding a Litmus Test for Amphibian Disease Susceptibility” will examine genomic changes in frogs impacted by disease, as a means of predicting susceptibility. Anat will be based at Cornell, but also advised by Rob Fleischer at Smithsonian National Zoo Center for Conservation Genomics, and Laura Patterson (state herpetologist) at California Department of Fish and Wildlife. Welcome Anat!
