On Friday, June 6, the department held its annual Pathology Research Retreat at Montefiore Medical Center’s Cherkasky Auditorium. The day-long event began with oral presentations by Brandi Freeman (predoctoral fellow, Desruisseaux lab), Dr. Esther Adler (Women’s Health fellow), Rachel Ames (predoc fellow, Macian lab), and Dr. Loreto Carvallo Torres (research fellow, Berman lab). Following lively scientific discussion over a buffet lunch in the Grand Hall, invited guest speaker Alexander Tarakhovsky, MD, PhD, of The Rockefeller University presented his research entitled “Control of gene expression by histone mimics.” The day wrapped up with a two-hour poster session highlighting the department’s outstanding research. Prizes for best posters went to the following researchers:
Esther Alder: “Molecular Diagnostics from Stained Cytology Smears”
Yuri Chaves Martins: “Endothelin-1 Treatment Induces Experimental Cerebral Malaria in Plasmodium berghei NK65 Infected Mice”
Daniel Shin: “Nfat-dependent Transcriptional Mechanisms Regulate the Suppression of Effector T Cell Activation by Regulatory T Cells”
