Nidhi Menon had her abstract ( Heparin-based hydrogel as a 3D matrix for solid-phase growth factor presentation and cultivation of human breast cancer cells) selected for poster presentation at the 2017 BMES Annual Meeting in Phoenix, Arizona.
Nidhi Menon is now an associate member at the Graduate Academy for Teaching Excellence for her work as a teaching assistant.
Nidhi Menon & Brittany Boribong had their abstracts selected for poster presentation, and Udaya Sree Datla had her abstract selected for both oral & poster presentations at the "18th International Conference on Systems Biology (ICSB) 2017" at Virginia Tech this Fall (August 6-12, 2017).
Udaya Sree Datla, a graduate researcher in Jones lab has been awarded a Collaboration Incentive Award at "The Second Center for Soft Matter and Biological Physics Symposium" at Virginia Tech on May 17, 2017. She received this award along with Sheng Chen (graduate student in Dr. Uwe Täuber's lab in physics dept.) for their work entitled "The Spatiotemporal Network Dynamics of Acquired Resistance in an Engineered Microecology".
Amina Rahimi, an undergraduate researcher in Jones lab and a double major in biochemistry and microbiology in the College of Science at Virginia Tech, has been selected as a 2017 Goldwater Scholar. Congratulations Amina!
Caroline Jones will give an invited talk in the new Enabling Technologies Session at the “The Society for Leukocyte Biology’s 49th Annual Meeting” and “Neutrophil 2016” in Verona this Fall (September 15th, 2016). Hope to see you there!
