Phil Carella has been chosen as this year’s recipient of the CUPE 3906 TA/RA Award for the Faculty of Science. Phil has been a graduate student in the department since 2010 and has been a TA for Biology 2D03, 2L06 and Mol Bio 3Y03. He went above and beyond to help develop and troubleshoot many lab exercises for both Bio 2D03 and 2L06. He was also a great mentor to his students helping to further their understanding of the material while balancing his research responsibilities. We are sad to lose him as a TA but congratulate him for landing a post-doc at the Sainsbury lab at Cambridge University in the UK where he will study the immune systems of early land plants like moss.
