A scientist who means business

While much of humanity spent the COVID lockdown binging in front of a television, Juliet Spencer was improving herself. In addition to virtually conducting her copious duties as director of TWU's School of the Sciences and as a biology professor, Spencer was earning an MBA from TWU.

Molecular biology PhD candidates honored

Texas Woman's University PhD candidates Hala Samara and Mafia Mahabub Rumpa recently earned two presentation awards apiece at the International Forum on Research Excellence (IFoRE) 2022 of the Scientific Research Honor Society.

The vast and the curious

There is a dimension unknown to all but an uncommon few. It is vast, yet fits within the nucleus of a single cell and challenges the human mind's concept of the finite. It is found in every living creature on Earth and within its matrix is the blueprint of each organism, but until very recently it existed beyond human comprehension. It is the world of the infinitesimal.

It is also the classroom of Texas Woman's University biology professor Catalina Pislariu, PhD.
