She has also been a core member of the testing team for Hamilton County’s Test and Protect project to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our region. We asked Dr. Zander if she could take a few minutes between switching hats for a quick Q & A.

Women in Pathology Leadership Development Event!

Deb Elbaum

Confident leadership requires time and self-reflection about one’s current strengths, as well as areas for development. Putting energy and intention toward developing these areas can help us not only build our authentic leadership presence and voice, but also result in greater interpersonal effectiveness and impact. In this interactive 1-hour workshop with Leadership Coach Deb Elbaum, attendees will get clearer about their current leadership skills and identify where they can put attention to be even more successful in their current or future role.

Deb Elbaum is an executive and leadership development coach who has been guiding people to think and act calmly and confidently for more than 15 years. She builds her clients’ capacity to manage challenges more effectively – including navigating change, building teams, creating strategic plans, communicating successfully, and inspiring and engaging others. Deb’s approach to coaching combines neuroscience, leadership models, and measurable action planning. She equips her clients for success by building their internal awareness and strategy toolkit so that they can quickly increase their external impact, interpersonal effectiveness, and authentic leadership presence.

A former physician and founder of a healthcare writing company, Deb partners with senior and emerging leaders in academia, healthcare, biotech, and pharma. Examples of clients include MIT, Tufts University, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, Takeda, Sanofi, and Karyopharm Therapeutics. Deb is known for her positive energy and ability to carefully listen, quickly reframe, and hone in on the heart of the matter. Her clients learn how to identify blindspots that are holding them back, cultivate their authentic leadership, and shift behaviors so they feel more purposeful, balanced, and productive.

Do you have an interest in growing your professional development and advocating on behalf of the biological and biomedical sciences?

In December 2019, the FASEB Board of Directors approved the addition of three new positions on the Board and three new positions on the Science Policy Committee for early-career researchers (ECRs). The inaugural three ECRs began their terms in July 2020. Subsequent ECR positions on the FASEB Board of Directors and Science Policy Committee will continue to be filled in a staggered manner in the years to come. Candidates interested in being considered should begin the process by inquiring with their scientific society regarding the timeline and nomination instructions.

Do you have an interest in growing your professional development and advocating on behalf of the biological and biomedical sciences?

If so, consider applying for an Early-Career Representative position on the FASEB Board of Directors or Science Policy Committee.
In addition to having a passion for advocating for the biological and biomedical sciences, nominees should be effective communicators across multiple stakeholders such as the member society and the general public; show a demonstrated commitment to serve science through scientific organizations; and hold a record of professional service, including active membership in The American Society for Investigative Pathology.

Nominations are due by
Monday, April 5.
Visit FASEB for more information and contact us to apply.

  • Early-career researchers make up a significant portion of the biological and biomedical sciences community, and the FASEB Board seeks their unique insights and opinions.
  • The Early-Career Representative positions are critical to the FASEB leadership and help foster dialogue between current and future generations of biological and biomedical researchers.
  • Early-Career Representative positions enable researchers to enhance their professional development and contribute to FASEB’s decision-making.
