Dr. Sho Hiroyasu, a post-doctoral researcher in the lab of Jonathan Jones, has been awarded a 2015 Albert M. Kligman Travel Fellowship to attend the annual meeting of the Society of Investigative Dermatology in May in Atlanta, Georgia. In addition to the fellowship, Dr. Hiroyasu has been invited to give a minisymposium talk at the meeting. His presentation will be entitled ‘Collagen XVII regulates actin dynamics and traction forces in motile keratinocytes’.
We are very pleased to announce that Natalie Peer has been selected as the 2nd place winner in the Medical and Life Sciences category for her outstanding oral presentation. She will be receiving a $500 scholarship for her efforts.
This year’s event was the most competitive event that was hosted, with over three hundred applications in the initial round of submissions, and over a hundred and fifty presentations taking place the day of the event. There was an overwhelming amount of cutting-edge research and scholarship on display, and all are to be commended for their efforts.
