| || Poster competition awardees and their posters|
| ||Dec 14, 2004 by: admin |
|Summary: ||As a part of the program of the IABMR annual meeting of December 2nd, there was
a fantastic poster competition with participants from different institutions of
the Boston area. The first prize (a digital camera donated by Optical
Analysis Corp.) was given to Dr. Xinsheng Zhu from Brigham
and Women’s Hospital. His poster showed that the over-expression of the
calcium-binding protein sorcin improves cardiac excitation-contraction coupling
in normal and failing ventricular cardiomyocytes. Dr. Zhu’s poster was impressive
not only for the high scientific quality of the data but also for its great organization
and presentation. The second prize ($100) was given to Dr. Yumei Zhang
from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Her poster showed through convincing
animal experiments, immunohystochemistry and reporter assays that Ets-1 is a critical
transcriptional mediator of Angiotensin II-induced vascular inflammation and remodeling.
Third prizes ($50) were given to posters presented by Drs. Wei Chen
and Yucheng Wang from the Forsyth Institute. Dr. Wang’s
poster was about the generation of an osteoclast specific cre transgenic mouse
that can be used to generate osteoclast gene conditional knock-outs. Dr. Chen’s
poster on the other hand, demonstrated through animal studies and recordings of
muscle and heart functions that haploinsufficiency of ZNF9 is the cause of myotonic
dystrophy type 2, one of the most common forms of muscular dystrophy in adults. |
