Women in Science and Engineering Research at Mayo Clinic
In 2015, Mekala teamed up with a fellow grad student to launch a group for Women in Science and Engineering Research (WiSER) at Mayo Clinic. WiSER is a group committed to the career development of female researchers in the fields of science and engineering. The mission of the group is to support the success of women in research by providing opportunities for career development, networking with women leaders, identifying strong mentors, outreach, and developing a meaningful community for women in biomedical research at Mayo Clinic.
