Greg Hoeprich presents research to fellow students at a CMB Retreat.

Gregory Hoeprich, Molecular Physiology & Biophysics PhD Candidate in Dr. Chris Berger’s Lab, attended the 2013 Motile & Contractile Systems Gordon Research Conference from July 28-August 2. At the beginning of the conference, Greg said, Dr. Erika Holzbaur, Chair, challenged the postdocs and PhD students in attendance to ask the first three questions after each presentation. Dr. Holzbaur and Dr. Fred Chang, Vice Chair, felt his questions were the most insightful, so they recognized his efforts with an award for Outstanding Questions.

The Gordon Research Conferences are smaller conferences that are more focused on specific topics. Specialists, faculty, postdocs, and students from the field gather and enjoy seminars from PIs and faculty, a poster session, and a casual interactive environment. Greg applied to the conference and was invited to attend and present a poster. He said he enjoyed the chance to interact with people in his field on a more intimate level than larger conferences allow.

Congratulations Greg!
