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.
Cancer research has fascinated me since I first developed a strong love for the molecular and cellular world as a child. I received my B.S in Biochemistry and Minor in Studio Art from UNH in 2013. I spent my undergraduate career as an independent researcher in the UNH Glycomics lab focusing on the structural biology of carbohydrates as biomarkers. Joining the CMB program as a Ph.D. student at UVM is a perfect avenue for me to continue my academic career, and apply my passion for cancer research in a collaborative scientific setting. My other interests include oil painting, surfing, amateur astronomy, and homebrewing. Phillip Blake Munson
