Sustainability Champion of the Month
Trinidad Cicernos, PhD Student, Immunology
Trinidad Cisneros, PhD candidate in the School of Medicine’s Transplant Immunology lab, is a champion in promoting sustainable lab practices. During his service as the first School of Medicine sustainability intern, he organized the spring lab materials sharing event, which saved the university $90,000 in research funds. Although no longer an intern, he has continued to pilot new sustainability programs in his lab, including testing out new in-lab recycling bins and metering lab equipment to identify energy conservation opportunities. Trinidad’s creativity and enthusiasm has enabled the Cardinal Green Labs program to grow significantly over the past year.
