On The Rise: Molly Hall Brings Data Analysis to Child Development
November 22, 2019
Most of the life science labs at Penn State look a lot like, well, labs. There are beakers and pipettes and samples, with grad students and postdocs scurrying past cutting-edge instruments and their attendant warning signs in lab coats and gloves. That’s not the case with Molly Hall’s lab. Nested in an alcove of cubicles in a far corner of the top floor of Wartik, Hall’s cadre could pass for an app startup team, or maybe the staff of a small-town newspaper. The whiteboard that dominates one wall is covered in doodles, not diagrams. But don’t be fooled by first impressions: the members of the Hall Lab are serious bioinformaticians, and they’re knee-deep in exciting, big-picture life sciences inquiries.
