This July 4th, Carnegie Corporation of New York is once again celebrating immigrants whose achievements have helped enrich the fabric of our nation. Among the more than 40 naturalized citizens being recognized is biochemist Joanna Wysocka, PhD, whose path to Stanford began with the fall of the Berlin Wall.
The corporation is honoring this inspiring group of immigrants with a public service ad appearing in a variety of media outlets, including tomorrow's edition of The New York Times. Additionally, Carnegie Corporation has launched a companion website titled “Great Immigrants: The Pride of America,” which includes this year’s honorees and those celebrated in previous years. The site also features a timeline highlighting Andrew Carnegie’s experiences as an immigrant.
Earlier this year, Wysocka won the Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise in Biomedical Science. She received the Outstanding Young Investigator Award from the International Society for Stem Cell Research in 2010.
