After taking some time to get his graduate research project up and running at UCLA, CALS biochemistry alumnus Jeffrey Vinokur – a.k.a. The Dancing Scientist – is back onstage. Vinokur, BS’12, who we featured in Grow magazine back in Summer 2011, recently brought his hip-hop laboratory extravaganza to The Today Show on NBC, The View on ABC and The Queen Latifah Show on CBS.

According to Vinokur, this outreach work – along with his research – helped him snag a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Award this year.
