ASCB Award secured to fund Second Annual Cell Biology of Eukaryotic Pathogens Symposium

Two graduate students from the Department of Genetics & Biochemistry and EPIC, Sarah Bauer and Cheryl Jones, along with graduate student Tony Szempruch from University of Georgia, were granted funding from the American Society for Cell Biology to host the Second Annual Cell Biology of Eukaryotic Pathogens Symposium. This meeting will showcase the cutting edge research of students, post-doctoral fellows, and primary investigators that focus on important emerging pathogens that impact the world. The 2nd CBEP is planned for October 17, 2014, and will be similar in format as last year’s meeting held at Clemson that had over 80 attendees from South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee. Additional funding for this event will be provided by Clemson's Department of Genetics and Biochemistry, Department of Biological Sciences, CAFLS, EPIC, EPIC Scholars, and UGA's Center for Tropical and Emerging Global Diseases.
