Proteintech Announces Winner of 2018 Best Postdoctoral Mentor Award


Callie Kwartler recognized by peers for exceptional laboratory management

the benchmark in antibodies, today announced the winner of the 2018 Best
Mentor – Postdoc Category. Receiving hundreds of votes, Callie Kwartler
of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston has been
awarded $1000 towards her research.

Callie Kwartler was one of five postdoctoral fellows from over 250
entries across the globe selected for public voting. Callie is a model
of selfless mentorship as one nominator mentioned, "When I joined the
lab a year ago and my house flooded during Hurricane Harvey, she helped
me find stability in balancing work and the move out of my house. She
has been a constant support throughout the year as both a mentor and a
friend, and I strive to become a mentor like her in the future."

"She has helped me learn to think through scientific questions and make
sense of confusing data. She is a gifted teacher, helping myself and
others to take our science a step further. She is constantly providing
invaluable advice and insight to me and the other trainees in the
laboratory. Despite her busy schedule, she takes time out each day to
answer questions and provide advice, and sometimes just a good pep
talk," another nominator noted.

"Callie is a great reminder that science is about people as much as it
is about data," Dr. William Olds, Scientific Officer at Proteintech,

Proteintech supports the careers and development of scientists through a
variety of initiatives, including annual travel grant competitions,
mentorship awards, and a career podcast, The Incubator (available
on Itunes).
