“Through CaRES I had the privilege of being introduced to the complex field of cancer research. I gained an appreciation and an understanding of the importance of this step in conquering cancer, the second leading cause of death in the U.S. Also, this experience gave me new-found enthusiasm and optimism about the future of cancer therapy, transforming the way I intended to practice medicine in the future. Therefore, I would like to thank all the CaRES faculty and my mentor Dr. Farrukh Afaq for their efforts in making this experience so special.”
This year marked the inaugural poster session for the 2017 CaRES summer research training program. The session was hosted at the new Hill University Center and 45 of this summer’s 47 CaRES students presented posters about their research and were judged by 18 CaRES preceptors. Prizes were awarded for the top three posters in each section. A companion poster session was held at Hudson Alpha Institute for Biotechnology in Huntsville, AL on July 28 for two students performing their internship at that facility. CaRES faculty attending the session at UAB included Drs. Peter Smith, John Waterbor, Michael Brooks, Renee Desmond, and Allison Litton while Dr. John Waterbor also attended the Huntsville presentation. CaRES Internship Coordinator Judy Baker organized the UAB event. Congratulations to all CaRES interns and preceptors for a successful event!
