Conferences attended by our students

The lab students regularly present research work at (inter)national conferences.  Recently, our "bread and butter" meeting has been the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB).  It is, in my opinion, the best overall conference for content, student learning and engagement, networking, and overall fun with science.

Below are photo galleries of the students at work and at play at these conferences.

ASCB, Dec. 2-6, 2017, Philadelphia

Students who attended: Erika Beyrent, Alexander Haber, Anne Kennedy, Haleigh McBride, Matthew Reynolds

Annie Kennedy presents her research on odor-induced modulation of neuronal differentiation in the chick olfactory system, while Alex Haber presents his poster on oxidative stress-induced changes in traffic of amyloid precursor protein in neuroblastomas.

Erika Beyrent presents her work on oxidative stress and redistribution of Tau in the cultured cells from chick embryonic brain, while Matt Reynolds discusses his work on ciliary regrowth in unicellular flagellates.

Out and about in Philadelphia.

ASCB, Dec. 12-16, 2015, San Diego CA

Students who attended: Alice Chen-Liaw, Nicole McAndrew, Christa Musto, Grace O'Neill, Matthew Reynolds

Matt Reynolds shows his work on oxidative stress and myelin-basic protein, while Alice Chen-Liaw presents her work on Exendin-4 and hepatic steatosis.

ASCB, Dec. 6-10, 2014, Philadelphia PA

Students who attended: Alice Chen-Liaw, Nicole McAndrew, Christa Musto, Grace O'Neill

Alice Chen-Liaw presents her work on hepatic steatosis in HepG2 cells, while Nicole McAndrew presents her poster on retinoic acid and nuclear receptor pathways.

Grace O'Neill and Christa Musto present their work on odor-induced modulation of neuronal differentiation in the chick olfactory system.

The students at the ThermoFisher reception at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

ASCB, Dec. 14-18, New Orleans LA

Students who attended: Alice Chen-Liaw, Elisa Guisto, Emily Harasym

Welcome to New Orleans!

Alice Chen-Liaw shows her work on oxidative stress and neurite outgrowth, while Elisa Guisto shows her work on oxidative stress and APP protein redistribution; both used cultured chick brain neurons.

Emily Harasym shows here work on retinoic acid-induced differentiation of neuroblastoma cells.
