Hi! My name is Alex Wells and I am a postdoc at NIH studying the extent to which cutaneous immunity is directed toward, and regulated by, endogenous retroelements, particularly in the context of environmental exposure. I am interested in working with SolvingFor to change our community's ethos from "I suffered and so should you", to "I suffered but why should you?" We work in a competitive and challenging field, but that doesn't mean it has to be crushing and isolating; how can we change our perspective to one where we instead support and encourage each other via mentoring and collaboration, two well-established components of being a leader in science.
