ABRCMS

December 23, 2014

This past November, 16 CASE students, juniors and seniors from the MARC and RISE programs, attended the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) in San Antonio. These students represented some of the brightest students at Brooklyn College studying science and engaged in innovative research both here on campus and while visiting other universities during the summer.

ABRCMS is the largest research conference of its kind. Our students attend every year, and we have had a good track record of bringing back winning posters. This year was no different: Two of our MARC students won at ABRCMS. Chemisry major Diandra Smith won in the neuroscience division for her work during the summer with Dr. Damien Pearse at the University of Miami on spinal cord injury. Diandra currently works in Professor Lesley Davenport's lab at Brooklyn College. Psychology major Nadrienne Pinnock won in the Social and Behavioral Science division, for her work with Dr. Augustine Osman's lab at the University of Texas in San Antonio, where she worked on shame related responses. Nadrienne works in Assistant Professor Elizabeth Chua's lab at Brooklyn College.

We want to say congratulations to our winners Diandra and Nadrienne, and also to say that we are very proud of all of our students who attended ABRCMS. These students worked hard not just maintaining their good grades but also conducting research in faculty labs on our campus during the school year and also giving up their summer to travel to other universities to conduct research.
