At the ATS meeting in May, Jimmy Nolin presented his poster to Dr. Rory Morty, Director of the International Graduate Programme at the University of Giessen. Each year, several international students are asked to attend the annual retreat at the University of Giessen. This year Jimmy, a third year CMB student working with Dr. Yvonne Janssen-Heininger, was invited to attend. Congratulations on being offered this opportunity.
I received my B.S. in Biology from SUNY Plattsburgh in 2012 and joined the CMB program for the Fall 2012 semester. I chose UVM based on the location being close to my hometown in New York and the great research being done here. Outside of school, my interests are homebrewing and video games. After doing 4 rotations in my first year, I joined the lab of Dr. Matthew Poynter where I will be researching the role of Serum Amyloid A in airway disease. Ed Burgess
