Past Coffee and Conversation

We host a monthly online, interactive webinar with a senior GWIS mentor and a small group of GWIS members.


These webinars are designed to allow for in-depth conversation and an opportunity to network directly with the speaker. Each month look for a preview of the speaker and a link for registration in our GWISConnect and GWISLead mailings. Only 7 registration spots are available for each session, so you’ll want to act fast once registration opens! We have recruited amazing mentors!

February 2017

Date and Time: Tuesday, February 21st, 8pm EST
Theme: Diversity
Speaker: Dr. Patricia Sylveria 

Dr. Patricia Silveyra earned the equivalent of a Bachelor’s and a Master’s Degree in Biological Sciences* and the equivalent of a Doctoral Degree in Biological Chemistry** from the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina. She then attended Penn State College of Medicine and worked with the Center for Host Defense, Inflammation, and Lung Disease (CHILD) Research in the Department of Pediatrics as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow. Most recently, Dr. Silveyra acquired a Graduate Certificate in Applied Bioinformatics from the Pennsylvania State University World Campus.

Currently, Dr. Silveyra is an Assistant Professor at Penn State College of Medicine in the Department of Pediatrics. There, she researches the molecular mechanisms of inflammatory lung disease using mouse models. To evaluate the condition of the lung defense system, her research lab examines the immune cells present in the lungs after being exposed to toxins. However, the lungs of men and women respond differently to toxins in the environment; thus, Dr. Silveyra is interested in the sex-specific molecular mechanisms of inflammatory lung disease.
