The CBL congratulates its own, Dr. Poulami Majumder, a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Scheider group, who has been awarded the first prize in the Young Investigator Poster Competition at the Gordon Research Conference (Chemistry and Biology of Peptides), held in Ventura, CA earlier this year. Dr. Majumder’s poster entitled, “An Injectable Peptide Hydrogel for Long-Term microRNA Therapy in Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma” was chosen out of almost 130 posters presented at the conference. This year’s conference theme was “ Bridging the Gap Between Fundamental and Applied Peptide Science” and had top peptide scientist participants from academia, government and industry.
