SAVE THE DATE!
The 23rd Annual Pathobiology Graduate Program Retreat will be held TUESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2013 at the Haffenreffer Retreat.
On March 15th, Noelle Hutchins defended her thesis “The Multifaceted Roles of Fas and PD-L1 on Liver Sinusoidal Endothelial Cell Dysfunction in Sepsis”.
Her research was recently published inThe American Journal of Pathology: http://www.journals.elsevierhealth.com/periodicals/ajpa/article/S0002-9440(12)00889-9/abstract.
Dr. Hutchins has accepted a postdoctoral position in the lab of Al Ayala where she also completed work for her final dissertation.
Noelle’s defense and ensuing celebration were well attended by fellow Pathobiology students, hospital staff and the Hutchins-Kelso family, including her beautiful baby girl! Way to go Noelle!
