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 BS in Biology from UMass Amherst. Shortly after graduation, I moved up to Wilder, VT where I worked as a research technician in Mako Saito's Lab in the Genetics Department of Dartmouth Medical School. During the 3 years that I spent studying cell-cycle regulation with Dr. Saito, I completed my MS in Clinical Research at The Dartmouth Institute. I decided to join the CMB PhD program at UVM after living in Burlington for a few years working in a variety of clinical healthcare and research positions. The vibrant academic community in Burlington is an exciting place to pursue my research interests, while the beautiful Green Mountains provides enough wilderness to fuel my outdoor passions.
