Why I Participate:
I am riding in honor of my friend and research collaborator Dr. Ben Barres. Ben was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and has been undergoing intensive treatment. For those of you who do not know Ben, he is a Professor at Stanford University and is a remarkably creative scientist who has made enormous contributions to our understanding of neurobiology. Ben has also been a very important voice for gender equality in science - something that our presidential candidates remind us is still a deep rooted problem in our society.
One of Ben's great joys outside of the lab is cycling!
