Last week, UCI MIND’s trainee-led organization REMIND hosted their 12th Annual Emerging Scientists Symposium. The event was hosted virtually on Zoom for the first time and featured six trainee presentations: Sepideh Kiani Shabestari in Dr. Blurton-Jones’ lab, Emily Miyoshi in Dr. Swarup’s lab, Michael Neel in Dr. Monuki’s lab, Dr. Christian Crouzet in Dr. Choi’s lab, Dr. Angela Gomez in Dr. Tenner’s lab, and Dr. Atena Zahedi in Dr. Anderson’s lab. Presentations were followed by a trainee poster competition with innovative research projects on Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological disorders and a keynote lecture from Dr. Tony Wyss-Coray from Stanford University.
Sponsors for the symposium included MODEL-AD, UCI MIND, UCI School of Biological Sciences, UCI Sue & Bill Gross Stem Cell Research Center, and UCI Departments of Statistics, Neurobiology & Behavior, Neurology, and Pathology & Laboratory Medicine. UCI MIND thanks our faculty members and REMIND co-chairs for making the event possible and congratulates all the outstanding graduate students and postdoctoral scholars who participated in this collaborative symposium.
