Unsung Heroes: Liya Yin

I would like to nominate Liya Yin, M.D., Ph.D., in the Department of Integrative Medical Sciences as an Unsung Hero of NEOMED.

Liya is a tireless advocate for the members of our department both personally and professionally. She is central to communicating University-level policy to our faculty at departmental meetings. She works hard to make sure that the faculty around her have professional development opportunities. She readily shares her encyclopedic knowledge of scientific literature during research discussions. Perhaps most importantly, she cares about the other members of this University as unique individuals. You can count on Liya to offer to help with an experiment, to tell you that you are doing a great job and feel like you’ve earned that praise, or to show up with a plate of homemade dumplings just because she knows your daughter enjoys them.

We are truly fortunate to have Liya here at NEOMED.
