I am Cindy, the Administrative Coordinator for the Center for Biophysics and Quantitative Biology. I have been with Biophysics since September 1994, and have witnessed many changes in our program over the years. My favorite part of the job is working with our over 50 graduate students. I am seen as a surrogate "mom" to many. I try to help them navigate the university systems with as little stress as possible, and try to keep them on track with their program requirements so they can graduate on time. It is hard to watch them leave the "nest" (aka graduate), but I know they will leave here well prepared for the world of research or academia.
