Morgan Preziosi, PhD, Scientist at Chimeron Bio (Philadelphia PA) has been selected as the inaugural early career representative to the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) Science Policy Committee. Dr. Preziosi was nominated for this position by the American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP), and will begin her three year term in July 2020. FASEB represents 28 constituent Societies and more than 130,000 researchers from across the world. FASEB is recognized as the research and science policy voice for biomedical investigators. Dr. Preziosi has been a member of the ASIP since she began her graduate training at the University of Pittsburgh, where she completed a PhD in 2018. She spent two years as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Pennsylvania, and most recently joined Chimeron Bio as a staff scientist.
During her time as a trainee member of the ASIP, Dr. Preziosi received numerous awards for her excellent research (including the 2020 Experimental Pathologist-in-Training Award), and she was appointed to several standing committees as a trainee representative. She continues to provide excellent service to our Committee for Career Development and Diversity, and our Publications Committee. She has taken leadership roles with various subcommittees, and has remained fully engaged in ASIP programs and activities for over 7 years. Her exceptional service to the ASIP resulted in her being named the recipient of the 2021 Young Scientist Leadership Award. It is clear that Dr. Preziosi is the model of an early career professional that recognizes the importance of membership in scientific societies like the ASIP and the important role that FASEB plays in representing working scientists across the United States. Dr. Preziosi will provide a voice for our young investigators on matters of science policy.
