Congrats to Cindy Liu, a senior majoring in biomedical computation, who will study at @cambridgeuniversity on a Churchill Scholarship, awarded by the Winston Churchill Foundation of the United States. • At Cambridge, Liu plans to pursue a Master of Philosophy – a research degree – in advanced computer science. Eventually, she hopes to become a physician scientist, using research and innovation to improve clinical outcomes for patients. • As a Stanford undergraduate, Liu has conducted research in the Skirboll Lab, where she performed experiments on the effect of antibody markers on colony growth/formation to identify cancer stem cells, and the Deisseroth Lab, where she works on improving techniques for mapping gene expression in three-dimensional tissue samples.
A juvenile minke whale greets Stanford@SEA students Daela Tipton and Neil Singh as the R/V Robert C. Seamans sails across the Pacific Ocean in the spring of 2017. The image, by human biology major @hannajpayne, was recently announced as a category winner in the @stanfordearth photo contest, which brought in nearly 200 submissions from across the university. (For more, visit the link in our bio.) Stanford@SEA, an academically rigorous, quarter-long course, immerses participants in marine biology and oceanographic sciences — first during five weeks at @hopkinsmarinestation and then for the same amount of time aboard a research vessel on the open water. More than 160 Stanford students, from a wide range of majors, have sailed in the course since 2003. (For those interested, applications for the 2019 voyage are due Jan. 31.

They say raising kids is the hardest, and it's not. It's letting them go. Stanford offers comprehensive, need-based financial aid that makes it possible for any undergraduate student who’s admitted to attend — and more than 75 percent graduate debt-free. To learn how the program works, or use the net price calculator to get an award estimate based on your family’s financial situation, follow the link in our bio.
For the second straight season, a Stanford student-athlete is the #1 overall pick in the @nwsl draft. (@tierna_davidson will join the @chicagoredstars.)

Football and research have more in common than you might think, says Usua Amanam, '13, MS '15, a @stanfordfball Rose Bowl MVP and PhD candidate in energy resources engineering. I didn’t have as much research experience as others who came to our department for postgraduate work. It was difficult finding the time because of my football obligations, says Amanam, who works with @stanfordearth Professor Tony Kovscek. If you ask Tony, he’ll say I wasn’t a risk, that not all candidates have perfect credentials. He says that athletes often are successful in postgraduate work because they have perfected the skill of organizing their time.

School's in! Undergraduate Human Biology majors Phung Le and Jasmine Heu are hard at work slicing, staining and prepping brains for analysis, says Andrew Huberman, associate professor of neurobiology and of ophthalmology at @stanford.med.
