“Mentoring undergraduate students is one of the most rewarding experiences of my graduate career,” Caleigh says. “Winning this award is a symbol of the dedication to hard work and teamwork that my undergraduate students and I have accomplished.”

Caleigh works in the Marler Lab, where she studies the neuroendocrinology of social behavior and, most recently, paternal behavior. “Over the past five years, 28 different students have worked with me in the lab, and this has led to the successful completion of eight different research projects. Because of my team, I am able to do more experiments and answer more scientific questions. I am forever grateful for these students and for the recognition of my work as their team leader and mentor.”

Congratulations, Caleigh! We appreciate the impact you are having on our students.
