Stephanie came to the Center in May 2005 as assistant to Dennis Thompson. Prior to joining the Center, she worked in the world of scientific publishing where she found a new appreciation for neurons, cells and molecules and the scientists who write about such things. As for her own interests and curiosities, she finds music, music history, and travel most interesting. Future goals, some less immediate than others, include learning to cook and play a musical instrument (though not at the same time), living abroad and dedicating time to volunteerism.Email | Ph: 617.495.9337
