Michael Salinas, graduate student in the Nutrition and Food Science department and member of Chapkin lab received top honors for his poster presentation at the Microscopy and Imaging Center open house held on Friday, October 5, 2018.
Research in the Chapkin lab focuses on dietary/microbial modulators related to the prevention of cancer and chronic inflammatory diseases. The lab has been continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for the past 29 years.
The Symposium, which highlighted research conducted by Texas A&M postdoctoral researchers, took place on Sept. 19, at the Thomas G. Hildebrand, DVM ’56 Equine Complex. Twenty-two postdoctoral researchers from Texas A&M gave flash talks while 20 delivered poster presentations. Fuentes, was awarded 2nd place for his poster presentation titled, “Long chain n-3 fatty acids attenuate […]
The Grant Review Panel strives to short-list proposals that are most relevant, innovative, and impactful. Only the strongest applications that offer the greatest potential to deliver new progress in the prevention of cancer, and improve outcomes through lifestyle modifications, will be funded to pursue their research. The process is highly competitive and rigorous. The Chair […]
