Genetics and Biochemistry

Ph.D. Candidates Awarded Funds from the American Society for Cell Biology to host a Symposium

Genetics and Biochemistry Ph.D. candidates Katie Glenn, from Dr. Kerry Smith's Laboratory, and Michael Harris, from Dr. James Morris' Laboratory, along with former Clemson University student Ciara McKnight (now a Ph.D. student at the University of Georgia) recently were awarded funds from the American Society for Cell Biology to develop and sponsor a joint symposium between Clemson’s Eukaryotic Pathogen Innovation Center (EPIC) and UGA’s Center for Tropical and Emerging Global Disease (CTEGD). 

The symposium, which will be held at Clemson University on October 25, 2013, will feature presentations by students from both groups, along with a keynote seminar delivered by an internationally recognized leader in the field of molecular and biochemical eukaryotic pathogenesis.
