Jordan Ngo Wins First Place at ASCB | EMBO Conference
Congratulations to Jordan Ngo, a MARC scholar and senior chemistry student working in Dr. Bhandari's lab, for winning first place at the American Society of Cell Biology and European Molecular Biology Organization (ASCB | EMBO) conference in San Diego on December 8-12, 2018. Jordan's undergraduate poster, titled "Identification and Characterization of a Novel Phosphoregulatory Site on Cyclin-Dependent Kinase 5," competed against ~160 other students and received a perfect score from both judges.
Increasing Diversity in Biomedical Research
The Maximizing Access to Research Careers (MARC) Undergraduate Student Training in Academic Research (U*STAR) training program offers an excellent opportunity for undergraduate students seeking careers in biomedical research. We aim to increase diversity in biomedical research by identifying students interested in pursuing research as a career at an early stage and by providing training opportunities. Students from a variety of backgrounds are encouraged to apply especially those traditionally underrepresented in biomedical research (for example, racial and ethnic minorities, students from a socioeconomically disadvantaged background, students with disabilities).
