Graduate Research Forum

 March 19-20, 2013: Annual Biomedical Graduate Research Forum

The Annual Biomedical Science Graduate Research Forum was held on March 19-20, 2013.  This event is organized by the Council of Biomedical Graduate Students of the UT Health Science Campus and provides an opportunity for health science students to present their work to fellow students and faculty.  This year both oral and poster presentations were included with 16 oral presentations and 36 posters.  Thirty-one UT faculty and post-docs helped in the initial round of judging.  Three CVMD students, Varunkumar Pandey, Resmi Pillai and Jian Wu gave oral presentations and nine students in the CVMD track presented posters.  Winners in the poster competition were first place Minal Mulye (IIT track, Mark Wooten, PhD advisor), second place David Leggat (IIT track, Dr. Julie Westerink advisor) and third place Namrata Madan (CVMD track, Zijian Xie, Ph.D. advisor).  Winners of the oral sessions were first place winner Laura Halpin, (NND track, Brian Yamamoto, Ph.D. advisor) and second place Meghan Wyse (CB track, Kate Eisenmann, Ph.D. advisor).  Congratulations to all the winners and participants.  The judges of the final group were keynote speaker Dr. Robert Copeland, Executive Vice President and Chief Scientific Officer, Epizyme, Inc. and Dr. Douglas Leaman (Chairman UT Dept. of Biological Sciences).
