Gilles departs Institute

20 October 2022

After nearly six years with us, Tessa Gilles, who joined the Institute staff in 2016 as an assistant in the front office, is leaving on 21 October 2022 to become communications coordinator in the Office of Academic and Career Development at the University of Pittsburgh. We wish her well in this new endeavor but will miss her greatly.
