Ms. Newick presented a poster titled “COMBINATORIAL APPROACHES FOR TARGETING MITOCHONDRIAL REDOX SIGNALING AND FOXM1 EXPRESSION IN MALIGNANT MESOTHELIOMA,” describing the work that she did with Brian Cunniff, Balaraman Kalyanaraman, Paul Held, Jack Arbiser, Harvey Pass, Brooke T. Mossman, Arti Shukla, and Nicholas Heintz. You can see her research description in the iMIG Abstract Handbook (see pages 148-149).

She is working on her dissertation in the CMB program under the mentoring of Nicholas Heintz, PhD.
