SCIENCE IS HER MIDDLE NAME: Since we re-launched in April 2007, we’ve enlisted a team of online columnists to go where no Indy writer has gone before. One of our most widely read and recognized writers is Teisha Rowland, who’s been penning the Biology Bytes column since October 2009. Raised in Hemet, California, and Boulder, Colorado, Rowland came to UCSB as a grad student in the Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology department, where she studies how stem cells can fight macular degeneration under Professor Dennis Clegg. “Writing about science not only lets me share interesting and exciting information with a wide audience, often delving into a topic that people may only be superficially familiar with,” said Rowland, “but it also allows me to learn more about a variety of fascinating topics along the way.” Join the hundreds that read Biology Bytes every week by visiting today.
