UC San Diego Interfaces Graduate Training Program wishes trainee Samantha Jones well on her planned presentation at the EMBO EMBL Symposium in Germany, October, 2016. This symposium will bring leaders in the mRNA field together with post-docs and students, with the aim of disseminating and discussing the most recent results. The programme includes sessions on transcription, mRNA processing,export and localization, mRNA surveillance and decay and translation and the control of mRNA expression by microRNAs.
Research Quick Talks Award Winners, 2016 Interfaces Graduate Training Program Research Symposium
First place winner: Jae-Young (Jerry) Jung, Ph.D. student with Materials Science Engineering
Second place co-winners: Evan Campbell, Ph.D. student with Biological Sciences; and Tom Gillespie, Ph.D. student with Neurosciences Graduate Program
This annual event offers graduate students the unique challenge to present their work to faculty and fellow students from across the biological, medical, physical and engineering disciplines of science. In addition, it is an excellent opportunity for attendees to identify common interests and form new interdisciplinary collaborations within the UCSD community.
Trainees Dimitri Floros and Jessica Ungerleider (pictured), along with Eulanca Liu, received awards and presented research at 2016 Grantees Meeting at NIH Natcher Center in Bethesda, July, 2016.
