Previous Student accomplishments
Congratulations to Ellen Gillis for being selected to attend the American Physiological Society Professional Skills Training Course, “Professional Integrity: Best Practices for Publishing Your Work.” Ms. Gillis will attend this course in January 2014 that is designed to promote a better understanding of how to prepare a manuscript for publication with professional integrity.
Congratulations to Ashlyn C. Harmon (mentor, Dr. Michael R. Garrett) for being awarded the Best Presentation by a pre-doctoral trainee on her talk “Identifying generic variants causative of increased kidney disease in the S.SHR(11) congenic model” at the 2013 Gulf Coast Physiological Society Meeting in Mobile, AL.
