Annie Le, 1985–2009
16 September 2009 5:30 pm
Murdered Yale University graduate student Annie Le was getting her Ph.D. in pharmacology, but her ambitions were spread wider. In 2006, as a college student, she worked on adult stem cells in the National Institutes of Health lab of Rocky Tuan, subsequently writing that she hoped to become a professor or NIH researcher. Tuan, now director of the Center for Cellular and Molecular Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, emailed ScienceInsider to share her thoughts. "Annie was such a special person and a wonderful student that I am still having a hard time accepting the fact that she is gone. ... She had so much future ahead of her."
