  1. Nicole, what a cool career, and an incredible company! I am the Editor of Trends in Biochemical Sciences, a monthly reviews-only journal. I’d love to interview your for the journal; I think it would be useful for our readership, which includes a lot of scientific trainees, to hear your story about what you do and how you came to do it. Please reach out to me, I’d love to chat.
