Renowned for her research in using lasers to treat cancer, Dr. Hadiyah-Nicole Green was a star attraction at TechConneXt as a participant in the women of color in tech panel. But Green, who averages 80 hours a week ensconced in a lab, was also there to talk business. If you really want to help me and help fight cancer, go to my website www.physics2cancer.org to donate, she told the audience. “No, I mean now. Pull out your phones and go to my website,” she then instructed. It was a spectacularly ballsy move and drove home the importance of her research.
