Meet Dr. Laura Wieland
Class of 2002
Ph.D. (2002-2008) from Boston College with Dr. Amir Hoveyda
Post-doc (current) at Harvard Medical School with Dr. Jon Clardy
Postdoctoral Research Associate
I got into distance running in graduate school, and I really enjoy doing races. My
favorite alternative exercise is rock climbing with my husband - in the winter we
go to a climbing gym, and in the summer we explore the outdoor climbing options in
the area. Less healthy (but still fun) activities mostly involve going out with friends
- Boston and Cambridge have some really great bars and restaurants.
Favorite IWU Chemistry Memory?
I have so many memories, from time spent in Dr. Mohan's lab, in study sessions with
my classmates, picking up trash along the highway, coming up with activities for the
travelling show, and in course labs and lectures. The overall good feeling I have
when I think of the IWU chemistry department really stems from the fact that we all
got along so well.
