Award-Worthy Renal Abstracts at #xBio

Apr 21 2014 Published by under EB2014

Pre- and post-doctoral researchers run the world of science. Sure, Principal Investigators get the credit, but our students and fellows actually perform the experiments and make the magic happen. At Experimental Biology each year (#xBio is the official hashtag), abstracts from trainees get considered for possible awards, with finalists judged on their presentations at the meeting.

All of the finalists will present poster versions of their work on Sunday, April 27, at the Renal Section's Posters and Professors Session. This event runs from 5:30 - 7:30 in Marina Ballroom DE of the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina (Level 3 of the South Tower; see the map). In addition to viewing some excellence science, you will get a chance to meet up-and-coming physiologists as well as hobnob with us more senior kidney folk.*

What if you can't make it Sunday evening? Below I have collected the information on the other presentations of the award-finalists' endeavors. Now you have no excuse for missing these amazing works of modern science!
