Congratulations to one of our IBMS PhD students, Pooja Yadav (Cancer Biology Discipline) for her platform presentation at the recent RNA Institute's 6th Annual RNA Symposium on "The Language of RNA in Disease and Development" held at University at Albany (State University of New York). The title of the abstract she proffered is "RNA demethylase ALKBH5 regulates osteosarcoma growth and chemosensitivity."


In addition, Pooja also received an award for her presentation, which was judged to be the best research presentation among of all of the oral presentations during the Trainee Presentation Session at the symposium.


Pooja, who is mentored by Manjeet Rao, was selected as the institution's sole applicant in 2019 for a prestigious NIH/NCI F99/K00 award and she is currently supported by a predoctoral fellowship from the CPRIT Research Training Award.


Congratulations also to Manjeet!
