Diabetes Researchers Present at Postdoc Research Symposium

Microdissection Laser (3)UF Postdoc Diabetes Researchers Patrick Rowe, Maigan Hulme, and Daniel Perry recently presented their work at UF’s First Annual Postdoctoral Research Symposium:  Postdoc Development through Networking and Collaboration at Emerson Alumni Hall in Gainesville, Florida.

Researchers examined specific genetic and immune markers that may be identified in the future as potential indicators of type-1 diabetes onset status.

The event saw over 120 postdocs and members of the UF community turn out for engaging oral and poster presentations; 12 of these were presented by postdoc’s in UF’s Department of Pathology, Immunology and Laboratory Medicine in the College of Medicine. The Department’s high level of  participation and outstanding support of postdoc development earned them the 2013 Postdoc Engagement Award. 

Congratulations Patrick, Maigan, and Daniel on a job well done!
