Two genetics, development and cell biology (GDCB) graduate students received Teaching Excellence (TEX) and Research Excellence (REX) awards from the Graduate College in spring 2022 for “outstanding” and “phenomenal” work. Keting Chen received a TEX award for work as a teaching assistant in BCBio 322, while Ting Miao received a REX for her work as a research assistant in GDCB Associate Professor Hua Bai’s lab.
A spring 2022 graduate, Chen is currently a postdoctoral research associate in GDCB Associate Professor Marna Yandeau-Nelson’s lab. Yandeau-Nelson was her major professor.
GDCB Professor Xun Gu nominated Chen for the TEX award. “She did a great job,” Gu said. He added Chen helped students adjust back to in-person classes.
