Van Gieson garners Graduate Student Travel Award from the Society of Toxicology
Jamie Van Gieson, a graduate student in the laboratory of Dr. Seema Somji of the Department of Pathology, has been awarded a Graduate Student Travel Award from the Society of Toxicology (SOT). This award provides support for Van Gieson to attend the 55th Annual Meeting of the Society of Toxicology in New Orleans, Louisiana, from March 13 to 17 of 2016.
Among the events specifically targeted to graduate students is the Graduate Student/Postdoctoral Fellow Mixer and the Graduate Student In Vitro Lecture and Luncheon sponsored by Colgate-Palmolive. She is also invited to participate in the SOT “Chat with an Expert” program held throughout the annual meeting and “Tox Show Down,” sponsored by the Graduate Student Leadership Committee.
In addition, Van Gieson will also present her poster on research performed as part of her PhD program at UND. Her presentation is titled “Role of Anterior Gradient 2 in a MCF-10A Cell Model of Arsenic Induced Breast Cancer.” Van Gieson’s research was partially supported by an Institutional Development Award (IDeA) from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health under grant number P20GM103442.
