Stephanie Ander, PhD

Why did you choose the University of Pittsburgh?

I chose Pitt because of the many PIs with interesting research--and I also really liked the city.

Following her graduation, Dr. Ander accepted a postdoctoral position in the laboratory of Dr. Tem Morrison as the University of Colorado at Denver.
