The second annual UAB Nathan Shock Center of Excellence in the Basic Biology of Aging Symposium was held April 18, 2018 at the UAB Alumni House. Hai’s abstract was chosen as one of the few graduate student projects to be presented as seminar talks. Hai did an excellent job presenting his latest data (not published so I’d tell you about it but you know… then I’d have to lock you in a closet till it was out and our closet looks a lot like a dark room…). Its great to see our team members grow and develop as young scientists! Congratulations Hai on being recognized for your outstanding abstract and for representing your hard work with such professionalism!
