Jasmin Chua, Diana Jong, Jaymes Leavitt


Jasmin Chua (“Biz to bio, Eisenburger heads for AlgoNomics and best of both worlds,” p. 24), an editorial intern at GT, is a graduate student majoring in biomedical journalism at New York University. She barely survives on a diet of ramen and coffee-flavored drainwater.

Most people are impressed when Diana Jong (“ISCB names many-hatted Bourne president,” p. 22) tells them she studied astrophysics in college, but if it was that impressive to her, she probably wouldn’t be interning at GT. While she misses the dental plan she had at Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Md., she still has (just) enough time to care for her teeth while pursuing a master’s degree in science writing at New York University.

This month’s photos of Michael Foley (front cover and p. 43) mark Jaymes Leavitt’s seventh cover for Genome Technology. A photographer working out of Boston, Jaymes also has been published in US News and World Report, Forbes, Marie Clair, and the London Daily Mail. His work was featured recently in a group show at the Monique Goldstrum Gallery in New York City.
