Postdoctoral fellows and graduate students at Georgia Health Sciences University will present their research at the 28th annual Graduate Research Day March 22-23.
Postdoctoral fellows, organized by Dr. Wendy Bollag, Professor of Cellular Biology and Graduate Studies, will discuss their research March 22 from 1-4 p.m. in room 2109 of the Interdisciplinary Research Building. Students and fellows will present posters March 23 from 10 a.m. to noon in the Wellness Center. Awards for outstanding student and postdoctoral research will be presented April 10 at 6 p.m. in the GHSU Alumni Center.
The day gives students an opportunity to get feedback on their work and offers an opportunity for them to sharpen their presentation skills before they present at national meetings, says Dr. Michael Brands, Professor of Physiology and Graduate Studies and Graduate Research Day coordinator.
Dr. Carl Wu, a senior fellow of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Janelia Farm Research Campus, will discuss Chromatin remodeling and the regulation of gene expression in eukaryotes as the event’s keynote speaker Friday, March 23 at 12:30 p.m. in room 1103 of the Hamilton Wing of the Sanders Research and Education Building. Wu is a National Institutes of Health Distinguished Investigator Emeritus and a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Medicine, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the Academia Sinica and the European Molecular Biology Organization.
