The PAB was established as a pilot project in 2014 to develop and promote
accountability, trust, and communication between the campus community
and the UC Davis Police Department. The PAB is comprised of representatives
from the major constituent groups on campus, including the Graduate Student
Association. The nominees to this position should be individuals who can review
investigations periodically throughout the year regarding police conduct in an
objective manner and reach conclusions based on information presented in
the factual record.
If you are interested in serving on the PAB, please see the full informational flyer

immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence microscopy
Duties: Design and execute studies related to the primary research focus and funded projects. The proposed
research examines the potential beneficial effects of genetic modifications of human pluripotent stem cell-
derived islet organoids and how these modifications and established cells lines might be cloaked from attack
by an allogeneic immune system, using both cell culture assays and after transplantation into humanized mice.
These studies seek to define what modifications may promote protection from destructive immune
mechanisms and support the concept that genome editing of stem cells for therapeutic benefit.

Working as a scientist in a non-profit organization combines the passion for science and the mission to directly contribute to the progress of society. Although not necessarily obvious, there is a huge diversity of positions for scientists in non-profit organizations including public health, science policy, international diplomacy, public relations and research support and funding. Our panelists will explain their motivations to transition to the non-profit world, their daily experience as well as provide advice for the audience.

The experience of individual, community, and systematic trauma can profoundly impact daily life. Though we have begun to speak more about this issue in recent years, the definition and impact of individual and collective trauma can still feel overwhelming and challenging to fully understand. This talk seeks to provide clarity by defining trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and clearly explaining its impact on individuals and the community with a focus on specific stressors and challenges unique to the biomedical field. Importantly, the webinar provides strategies and tools to support oneself and others who have experienced trauma.
