Four IMSD Scholars selected for Outstanding Poster Presentations at this year’s ABRCMS Conference!

Our IMSD Scholars recently returned from this year’s Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS), hosted in Anaheim, California.  Twenty-three of the IMSD Scholars participated, with 18 presenting their research. We are pleased to announce that for the ninth year in a row, at least one IMSD Scholar from MU has been selected as an Outstanding Research Presentation Award Recipient in their category. The conference included over 2,500 undergraduate research presentations and only 395 presentations were selected for this award. While all of the students’ presentations were excellent, it was an honor to have four of them selected by the judges for recognition at the national conference.

The following MU IMSD students received an Outstanding Poster Presentation Award:

Benjamin Jones (Jr. Biological Sciences) – MU Faculty Mentor: Erika Boerman/Medical Pharmacology & Physiology

  • Poster Title:  Decreased Metalloprotease Expression Contributes to Impaired Sensory Vasodilation in Mesenteric Arteries with Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • ABRCMS Scientific Discipline Category: Physiology & Pharmacology

Dominique Joseph (Jr. Biological Sciences) – MU Faculty Mentor: Charlotte Phillips/Biochemistry

  • Poster Title: Postnatal Inhibition of Myostatin and Activin-A in the Osteogenesis Imperfecta Murine (oim) Model
  • ABRCMS Scientific Discipline Category: Biochemistry

Alisha Perry (Jr. Biological Sciences) – MU Faculty Mentor: Elizabeth Parks/Nutrition & Exercise Physiology
