Congratulations to my mentor for her Innovator of the Year Award!

Innovator of the Year“When you get where you’re goin’, don’t forget turn back around. Help the next one in line. Always stay humble and kind”. These lyrics from Tim McGraw (yes, I like him, so what?!) remind me of Mavis Agbandje-McKenna. She is the queen of AAV… she’s basically the queen of gene therapy!, but never hesitates to help out, offer advice, and help the next ones in line. I owe a lot to her and was very proud to see her accept this year’s Innovator Award from UF’s Office of Technology and Licensing. Go Mavis!
