Chemistry & Biochemistry graduate student Nako Nakatsuka illustrated the children’s chemistry book “A is for Atom”. Available now on Amazon, the book was co-authored by UCLA alumnus Heidi McMahon.
Nakatsuka, a dissertation year fellow, received a competitive travel award earlier this year for her presentation at the “Brain in Flux: Genetic,
Physiological, and Therapeutic Perspectives on Transporters in the Nervous System” meeting in France.
She also starred in a “Kids Teach Science” video produced by BuzzFeed for Pfizer (watch it here).
