  • Congrats to Postdoctoral Fellow Sarah Deffit for Receiving a Postdoc Challenge Grant from the Indiana CTSI

    Dr. Sarah Deffit, a postdoctoral fellow in the Hundley lab, was awarded a Core Pilot Grant from the Indiana CTSI. Sarah’s project will utilize both the IUB-Flow Cytometry Facility and the IUB-Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics to characterize RNA editing in neuronal cells.

    Anirban Mitra PHD was awarded the Schreiber Research Prize for Outstanding Mentored Investigators from the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance.

    The Schreiber Research Prize for Outstanding Mentored Investigators is a $5,000 annual prize awarded to a junior researcher who can best demonstrate that he or she has been able to use prior OCRFA funding to impact the field of ovarian cancer research by making a significant discovery, making an important contribution to the literature, or transitioning to a full-time faculty position.

    Members of Medical Sciences laboratories presented their research at Cancer Research Day on May 12, 2016.
