Department researchers recognized at the 2014 Postdoctoral Research Symposium: Communicating Your Research
The second annual Postdoctoral Research Symposium was held on Monday, April 21, at Emerson Alumni Hall from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The theme for this year’s event was Communicating Your Research. Communication skills is one of the six core competencies promoted by the National Postdoctoral Association as a critical component for postdoctoral success, and postdocs with oral and poster presentations were judged on how well they can convey their research to lay audiences.
Judged in part by Department researchers Marguerite Hatch, BSc, PhD, and William M. Puszyk, BSE, PhD, participants were tasked with developing a poster based on theior research and presenting it to others in attendance at the Symposium. Award winners during the event included Nikolett M. Biel, PhD, from the Terada Laboratory, who won for her poster presentation titled “Generation of vascular cells from patient derived iPSC to model hyypertension.”
In addition to Dr. Biel’s win, our Department was given special recognition for our for the sheer number of our postdocs who participated in the Symposium.
Our Department sends sincere congratulations to Dr. Biel on her outstanding achievement. We also thank everyone who participated in the 2014 Postdoctoral Research Symposium, especially those who represented our Department so honorably.
Well done, everyone!
