They Call Her 'Research Girl'

Tania Torbati had reason to be nervous. The soon-to-be college junior had never so much as picked up a pipette, yet here she was waiting to be interviewed for a research internship at a lab led by a top neuroscientist. She hoped the interviewer could look past her lack of experience and see her sincere desire to learn all she could about biomedical research.

Born at Cedars-Sinai, Tania Torbati has interned in the laboratory of Maya Koronyo-Hamaoui, PhD, since 2014.
