Dr. Melissa B. Davis, who was recruited to Weill Cornell Medicine as an associate professor of cell and developmental biology research in surgery, was on Dec. 28 named to Cell Mentor’s list of 1,000 Inspiring Black Scientists in America. The Community of Scholars, a group of Persons Excluded because of their Ethnicity or Race (PEER) composed of postdoctoral fellows, early-stage investigators, instructors and consultants, created this list of inspiring Black scientists in order to highlight outstanding Black talent and dismantle the myth that outstanding Black scientists comprise a small percentage of the scientific community.
