RISE Alumni at ABRCMS 2021
Updated: Dec 2, 2021
On November 10-13, the RISE team attended the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students to promote the Rutgers School of Graduate Studies and RISE Program. We were pleased that a number of RISE alumni were also in attendance!
RISE 2021 Scholars Mickayla Bacorn, Taina Moore, and Midori Flores all participated as E-Poster Presenters, as did RISE 2020 Scholars Ronaldo Franjul, Lisby Santiago, MaryAgnes Balogun, and Luz Alfaro.
We would like to especially congratulate Mickayla Bacorn for her winning poster on her research she conducted this past summer, entitled "Biochemical analysis of the active site evolution for SARS-CoV-2 and other coronaviruses." She was mentored by Dr. Sagar Khare and Dr. Stephen Burley in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, and Christine Zardecki, Deputy Director of the RCSB PDB.
We hope that everyone had a productive conference experience and we're proud of your continued research excellence.
