Bio Students Awarded First-Place Commendation

Laurie Delatour and Melissa Toledo won the top distinction for the presentation of their research at a research symposium in October. The research students of Dr. Jeffrey Erickson attended the 14th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium in the Chemical and Biological Sciences at the University of Maryland in Baltimore, and co-presented a poster entitled: “Serotonin, SIDS, and the maturation of cardiorespiratory control: The effects of prenatal nicotine exposure on postnatal survival in the serotonin-deficient Pet-1 knockout mouse.” Their research was also presented more recently at the Society for Neuroscience meeting in Washington DC. Congratulations to all!
