Three Saint Vincent College undergraduate students who assisted with research conducted by Dr. Michael Rhodes, associate professor of biology, presented the results recently at the national Neuroscience 2017 Conference in Washington, D.C. The students, pictured in front of their research poster, are Anh (Alyssa) Le of Scottdale, a junior majoring in bioinformatics; Carrie Wylie of Hastings, a senior majoring in biology; and Grace Noel of Latrobe, a sophomore majoring in bioinformatics. Their research is entitled, “Sexually diergic invitro hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis activity following in vivo continuous nicotine administration and withdrawal.” The students also took advantage of countless opportunities to share and learn about emerging and unpublished findings, explore career paths and professional development opportunities and discuss hot topics in scientific publishing, academia, advocacy and public education. Sponsored by the Society for Neuroscience, the conference featured lectures by world-renowned scientists from around the world, more than 15,000 abstracts, symposia promoting comprehensive coverage of significant neuroscience research topics, more than 600 exhibitors showcasing new tools, technologies and publishing opportunities, dozens of professional development and networking events and more than 100 satellite events held in conjunction with the annual meeting. The students were accompanied by Rhodes.
