Biochemistry graduate student Carolyn Shirey has been selected to attend the 2017 National Graduate Student Symposium (NGSS) at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. Selection in the NGSS is extraordinarily competitive as application is by invitation only. Over 1,500 students were invited to apply for the 2017 symposium of which only 42 students, including Biological Sciences grad student Josh Mason, were selected to participate. Shirey and the other selected participants will receive an all expenses paid trip to St. Jude this Spring where they will give a talk, present a poster, and meet with St. Jude scientists.
Shirey’s research was conducted in the laboratory of Robert Stahelin, Adjunct Associate Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry at Notre Dame, Associate Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Indiana University School of Medicine-South Bend, and Interim Senior Associate Director at Harper Cancer Research Institute.
