Congratulations to Talia Shirazi for receiving College's Raymond E. Lombra and Roberta Lombra Outstanding Graduate Research Award for the social sciences!

Talia is an NSF Graduate Research Fellow, has won numerous awards from academic societies, published 13 first-authored papers in top journals, and is actively engaged in outreach. Utilizing a novel human disease model, isolated GnRH deficiency, Talia’s research provides transformative new data on relationships between sex hormones, the timing of peri-pubertal sex hormone exposure, and psychological phenotypes. Because of this work, Talia was one of 5 junior scientists worldwide—and the only student—invited to speak at the Presidential Symposium for the Society of Behavioral Neuroendocrinology in November 2020.

 

Congratulations Talia!
