The third season of BioGenesis explores the theme of “breaking the mold.” Over the course of their research training, these biologists have shattered the pre-conceived notions they grew up with about what scientists look like and where scientists come from. This episode features graduate student Yamilex Acevedo-Sánchez. Her first exposure to science was through TV, but she’s since learned that the media often showcases a narrow swath of the faces behind the discoveries. Now a scientist herself, she’s seen firsthand the diversity of disciplines and brainpower that fuels the research community. Her own research project explores how deleterious pathogens sneak from one cell to the next, spurring infection.
