    I read about WE CARE Solar on the UCB website recently and I haven’t stopped talking about it! I am thrilled to hear that Dr Stachel won a CNN Heroes Award for this outstanding work. As researchers on the front lines, we often stop short of taking the extra step to make a meaningful difference in the lives of the people we study. This is a true model and one that should make UCB proud!
