Gustavo Silva Named an Inspiring Black Scientist
Gustavo Monteiro Silva has been named one of 100 inspiring black scientists in the Crosstalk Blog of Cell Press. A. J. Hinton (University of Iowa) was inspired to compile the list after a student of color asked a colleague why black scientists were not covered in the curriculum. Hinton and his colleagues came up with 75 black “Established Scientists,” including our Gustavo, and 25 “Rising Stars.” As commenters noted the list is far from complete, but it is a step toward broader recognition.
Congratulations to Gustavo for serving as an exemplar!
