The September issue of INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine has recognized two Tulane scientists and a graduate student for making a difference in STEM.

Psychology professor Michael Cunningham, biomedical engineering associate professor Michael Moore and doctoral student Katherine Elfe are among the 40 winners of the Inspiring Leaders in STEM Award across the country.

“I am proud of the work that the Tulane School of Science and Engineering is doing to attract and support a diverse community of STEM students and faculty,” said Tulane Provost Robin Forman.

Lenore Pearlstein, owner and publisher of the magazine, says they aimed to honor the professionals who inspire their colleagues and communities.

“Inspiring Leaders in STEM Award recipients were nominated by colleagues and selected by INSIGHT Into Diversity based on their efforts to inspire and encourage a new generation of young people to consider careers in STEM through mentoring, teaching, research, and successful programs and initiatives,” according to a release by Tulane.
