On Friday, April 19, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the MBRB at the School of Medicine, 44 university postdoctoral fellows gathered for a poster forum to present their research findings.
Manish Sethi (Radiation Oncology) placed first for his research poster entitled Nanoparticle Chemosensitization; Christopher MacNevin (Pharmacology) placed second for his research poster entitled The small molecule based biosensor CaMbio reports calmodulin activation dynamics in cells and in vivo; and Zongdi Feng (Lineberger Cancer Center) placed third for his research poster entitled Membrane Hijacking: Acquisition of an Envelope by a Pathogenic Picornavirus.
The forum, which followed the Friday morning keynote address by Dr. Harold E. Varmus, is a critical component to the success of the Smithies Symposium. It provides an opportunity for fellows both to hear the inspiring stories of previous Nobel Prize winners and to highlight the critical research they are doing to impact medicine. The School of Medicine would like to thank all fellows for participating in the forum as well as all attendees of the morning and afternoon events.
