This year’s Research Day was organized by the UNC Lineberger Postdoctoral Committee: Drs. Polly Chugh, Scott Rothbart, Nate Siegfried, and Maria Bednar.

Dr. Brian Strahl serves as faculty advisory to the group.  Dr. Joseph Pagano is training grant PI along with Dr. Buddy Weissman.

Dr. Strahl expressed the following: “The Postdoc-Faculty Research Day was a great success.  The talks were all outstanding, along with the rich and diverse science covered in the poster session.  This was a true example of the great science being conducted by the faculty, postdocs and students at UNC.  The event was also a great opportunity for the presenters to gain valuable feedback and insight into their work.  In all, the 37th annual event exceeded all expectations and we all look forward to next year’s Research Day.”
